Science is a body of knowledge built up through experimental testing of ideas.
It involves working in a practical manner to find reliable answers to questions that are asked about the world and objects around us.
Science in our school is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live in. This will be achieved through investigation, as well as using and applying these skills in written work.
Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. It also satisfies their curiosity with knowledge. Science links direct practical experience with ideas and it engages learners at many levels. Scientific method is about developing and evaluating explanations through experimental evidence and modelling.
At Blessed John Duckett, we aim to nurture pupils’ curiosity, and provide them with a growing understanding of science knowledge. This will be carried out through an approach in which pupils raise questions and investigate the world in which they live.
