At Kings Meadow, Science is about developing an understanding and making sense of our environment, primarily through first-hand experience, exploration, interaction with scientific phenomena and developing scientific language. We believe that 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, it 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.
Across our curriculum, we aim for all children to develop their understanding of scientific knowledge and concepts. Children will be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They will be encouraged to understand how Science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
Throughout all our topics, children will be given the opportunities to work scientifically to explore and learn the key concepts taught to them.
