Itchen Abbas Primary School

Science

Science is taught in units of study in line with the new National Curriculum, where possible units are placed to compliment Topics and the school believes strongly in practical hands- on investigation work.  Children learn best through trying things out themselves through exploration.

 The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics,
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
