Science Aims:

We believe that a broad and balanced science education is the entitlement of all children. Our aims in teaching science include:

  • Building on children’s natural curiosity and developing a scientific approach to problems.
  • Preparing children for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world.
  • Helping children acquire a progressive understanding of scientific ideas.
  • Giving children the experience of scientific processes.
  • Helping children to acquire practical scientific skills.
  • Fostering concern about, and appreciation of, our environment.
  • Building children’s self-confidence to enable them to work independently and developing their skills to work with others
  • providing children with an enjoyable experience of science, so that they will develop a deep and lasting interest and be motivated to study science further.

Each year group has 5 topics to be covered over the year which means that topics will run over half-terms and other holidays.  This should provide ample time to fully cover all the requirements of the National Curriculum.  However, it would be useful if there is time at the end of the year to revisit topics to allow for revision prior to the end of year exams.
