Science is taught through topics which develop knowledge and understanding as well as key scientific skills.
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
We endeavour to ensure the practical nature of Science is, developing the skills necessary for carrying out investigations such observing, hypothesising and predicting results. Topics relate to the three main areas of Science: Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
We like to bring Science to life through a variety of creative ways. To help us do this we have made important links with Woodchurch High School, Ridgeway and Liverpool University. Involvement with the respective science departments has begun to impact on the children’s enthusiasm for the subject and their overall performance in Science
