“The important thing is to never stop questioning”
At Water Primary School, we believe that a high-quality science curriculum provides the basics for understanding the world through biology, chemistry and physics. Science is continually developing, it is vital to the world’s future and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. We aim to inspire children through thought-proving questions and investigations which develop excitement and curiosity about the world around us as well as helping our children acquire a growing understanding of the nature, processes and methods of scientific ideas.
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.
