"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 Offenham CE First School we strive to nurture young scientists through encouraging their curiosity and developing their understanding of how the world works.
We aim to expand their confidence to work scientifically and think critically.
We provide our children with an understanding of scientific processes and the uses and implications of science in the past, for today and for the future.
