Science teaches an understanding of natural phenomena. It aims to stimulate a child's curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way that they do. It teaches methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought. Children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way in which science will affect the future on a personal, national and global level.

Our objectives in the teaching of science are for all our children:

  • to ask and answer scientific questions;

  • to work scientifically, using scientific methods, processes and skills, including the use of ICT;

  • to know how to evaluate evidence, and to present conclusions both clearly and accurately;

  • to know about plants and animals, including humans, and their habitats;

  • to know about seasonal changes;

  • to know about materials, electricity, light, sound, and natural forces;

  • to know about the nature of the solar system, including the earth;

  • to know about evolution and inheritance.

Science may be taught as part of a class Learning Challenge Curriculum, or as a separate subject.
