A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world. Scientific advancement changes our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils are taught the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Pupils are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. 

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.

Science in THE classroom: Science WEEK 2019

KS1 learners  were inspired by the story of Margaret Knight, to design and make parachutes using paper bags. We enjoyed testing them and seeing which ones would fly and  took part in the Iggy Peck Bridge building challenge and a fascinating Forces workshop

KS2 learners enjoyed an Incredible Machines workshop building and testing inventions, were amazed by the WOW! Science visit and have explored  animal habitats and plant life cycles.
