Science

Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity; a high-quality science education enables pupils to develop a thorough understanding of the world around them. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. Mostly following a Rising Stars curriculum, science lessons are taught weekly where children are able to engage in curious thinking to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. The students engage in a balance of both practical and written tasks within teaching. Where possible, teachers will make links to the class’ current theme work. Alongside weekly teaching, children will also partake in whole school STEAM days where pupils are able to develop and incorporate their science learning alongside technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.
