Science is where children learn about the natural world through experiments and observations.
In our teaching of Science, we aim to:
- Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding.
- Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of Scientific inquiries 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
Our pupils will be taught:
- Biology- The study of living things (organisms), their structure and environments.
- Physics- The study of matter, forces and motion, sound, light and waves, electricity and magnetism and Earth in Space.
- Chemistry- The study of the composition, behaviour and properties of matter, and of the elements of the Earth and its atmosphere.
At Holywell, we follow the CUSP Curriculum for Science. Each unit will build upon pupil’s prior learning which is revisited in each year group. Through studying CUSP Science, our pupils will become ‘a little more expert’ as they progress through the curriculum, accumulating, connecting and making sense of the rich substantive and disciplinary knowledge.
