Science and Technological Understanding Vision

We have an enriched science, computing and technology curriculum that provides practical lessons. Our pupils are exposed to a wide variety of topics that support their curiosity for learning and promotes their own inquiry whilst encouraging them to explore new concepts.

Science vision

A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

In addition to the programme of study set out below, children are also taught  ‘Working scientifically’ which specifies the understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science for each year group. Children learn to use a variety of approaches to answer relevant scientific questions. These types of scientific enquiry should include: observing over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying and grouping; comparative and fair testing (controlled investigations); and researching using secondary sources. In addition to this, children should seek answers to questions through collecting, analysing and presenting data.
