- Have you ever wondered what happens when a candle burns, or which materials are the best conductors or even how a rainbow forms? If you have asked yourself questions like these then you are on the way to being a Scientist.
- Science touches all of our everyday lives and will continue to be vital to the prosperity of the world in the future.
- This subject encourages children to develop a sense of wonder, excitement and curiosity of natural phenomena. It lays the foundations for their understanding of the world around them.
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.
As a school we strive to provide a Science Education that enables the children to understand how scientific knowledge and skills can be used to create questions, plan investigations, make observations, evaluate results and make conclusions on what is happening.
