Welcome

Science

Subject Vision Statement

 

Our aims in teaching science are that all children will:

 

  • retain and develop their natural sense of curiosity about the world around them

 

  • develop a set of attitudes which will promote scientific ways of thinking, including open-endedness, perseverance, objectivity and a recognition of the importance of teamwork

 

  • come to understand the nature of "scientific method" involving: meticulous observation, the making and testing of hypotheses, the design of fair and controlled experiments, the drawing of meaningful conclusions through critical reasoning and the evaluation of evidence

 

  • become effective communicators of scientific ideas, facts and data

 

  • begin to build up a body of scientific knowledge and understanding which will serve as a foundation for future enquiry.
