How does Science meet our curriculum drivers?

World Aware:  In Science lessons, we explore and celebrate research and developments that take place in many different cultures, both past and present.  We explore how scientific discoveries have shaped the, beliefs, cultures and politics of the modern world.  We learn about the scientific perspective on the start of the universe and the evolution of life (with consideration of religious beliefs).  We study and discuss the impact of human beings on the environment, the problems created by industry and possible solutions.


Belonging:  Our Science curriculum aims to allow all children to feel a sense of belonging in their world and environment.  Through an understanding of the world around them, they will learn to respect their environment and to take care of the wonders of their world.


Possibilities:  In Science, children will learn about the many possibilities of the world through Scientific enquiry and asking questions.  They will explore STEM careers and challenge science stereotypes.


Well-being:  In Science, children are taught the skills of support, encouragement and perseverance.  They will be taught about their health and nutrition, smoking, drugs, making good choices.


Spirituality:  Spirituality means many things.  Spirituality is not something we can see; it is something we feel inside ourselves.  It is about awe and wonder, asking questions, inspiration and being aware of something ‘bigger’ outside of ourselves.  With children we refer to:


  • A sense of awe and wonder
  • Care for nature and living things
  • Wanting to love and to be loved by people
