Science at Cookridge Holy Trinity
Science involves the observation and investigation of the world around us. Pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Science teaching must promote in children a curious, questioning attitude that leads to investigation in order to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes.
AIMS OF SCIENCE TEACHING
- To deliver the Science Programmes of Study of the 2014 National Curriculum.
- To develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
- To develop ‘Working Scientifically’ skills through relevant practical tasks.
- To equip children with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science.
The staff have worked together to produce four key principles for teaching science in our school which will be referred to in our planning, classroom teaching and displays:
- Science is going well when there is practical exploration.
- Science is going well when there is engagement and enthusiasm.
- Science is going well when there is questioning from children.
- Science is going well when there is progression and structure
