At St James' Church of England Primary School, we recognise that a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world.
Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future. Through building up a body of knowledge and concepts, pupils should develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should feel encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
Science in the National Curriculum:
- Children will develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding.
- Children will 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.
- Children will be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
