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.
