Science at Allens Croft

"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."
National Curriculum 2014
 

At Allens Croft we believe that the ability to work scientifically and ask questions  is essential in preparing our children for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world today and in the future.  Throughout the science curriculum, opportunities are created to help develop and extend our children’s scientific concept of their world and build on our children’s natural curiosity of the world around them.   Science lessons also provide the opportunity for children to develop confidence in planning and conducting investigations, work collaboratively with others and evaluate their findings.
