Science

VISION

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.
  • develop the essential scientific enquiry skills to deepen their scientific knowledge
  • use a range of methods to communicate their scientific information and present it in a systematic, scientific manner, including I.C.T., diagrams, graphs and charts
  • develop a respect for the materials and equipment they handle regarding their own, and other children's safety
  • develop an enthusiasm and enjoyment of scientific learning and discovery
 

At Rusper Primary, our vision for science is to achieve all of the National Curriculum aims in a thorough and interesting way. Our Science curriculum is knowledge and vocabulary rich, ensuring children gain a deep understanding of fundamental scientific knowledge and concepts as well as embedding key science specific vocabulary and terminology (Tier 3 vocabulary).  In addition, children are encouraged to develop their scientific curiosity and understanding by working scientifically.

Our science policy is currently under formation and will be finalised shortly.
