As stated in the Programme of Study for Science, the aims of the national curriculum in science is 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.
The intent for Science at Worsthorne Primary incorporates all of the above, with the aim for science to inspire, encourage, nurture children’s innate curiosity and enable them to develop a range of skills that are useful and relevant to their own lives. We value science as a subject for all. We believe inspiring science teaching arises from lessons that place scientific enquiry at the heart of our school’s science curriculum. Children who learn the processes and deeper thinking of investigating, exploring, questioning, and enquiring will develop a skill set that will enable them to thrive now and as a future generation.
