Science is about developing enquiring minds and a scientific approach to problem solving, through predicting, testing and analysing the results of those tests.
The new curriculum, introduced in 2014, offers greater opportunities to develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding, as well as understanding the uses and implications of science today and for the future. The central aim is to build up a knowledge of biology, chemistry and physics. Working scientifically is key to the understanding of nature, processes and methods of science for each year group. It runs through all strands of science and is not taught in isolation.
We are developing Knowledge, Concept and Vocabulary organisers (KCVs) to ensure that pupils gain new knowledge whilst addressing the key concepts.
