Science

 

At Byron Court, we believe that Science stimulates and excites children’s natural curiosity about the world around them and satisfies that curiosity with knowledge. Participating in practical science activities encourages creative and critical thought. Children can see the impact that science has on the development of technology and have the opportunity to consider and discuss the way science may affect their lives and the future of the world.

The national curriculum for science aims 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.
