Science

“Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge” -Stephen Hawking.

 

 

 

Intent

A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

 

At St Joseph’s, we aim 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
  • Become equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

 

Moreover, we also aim to:

  • Develop in children a love of science.
  • Provide a wealth of opportunities to ensure that children are aware of science in the real world and how science impacts on other curriculum area.

"Science, for me, gives a partial explanation for life. In so far as it goes, it is based on fact, experience and experiment." - Rosalind Franklin
