Science

Our approach to Science is essentially of a practical nature. We aim to:

  • 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 children to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • equip children with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future
