At East Wichel School, we are passionate about delivering the best opportunities and experiences for all pupils as part of their education. Through Science, pupils at East Wichel School are able to gain extensive knowledge about how the world works in their local environment, as well as the greater world around them.
Staff at East Wichel School see it essential that all pupils are exposed to a broad and thorough Science Curriculum, and that pupils are given the opportunities to learning through knowledge and exploration to become inquisitive, enriched learners.
Purpose of study
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.
The national curriculum for science aims 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.
