SCIENCE CURRICULUM

Vision

The department strives to foster within students a love of Science.

We aim to:

  • Excite and enthuse children with a sense of awe and wonder at the natural world.
  • Develop an appreciation of how science has contributed to the historical and cultural development of our society.
  • Give practical experience of how scientists make observations of the natural world,
    come up with hypotheses and carry out experiments to obtain evidence to support
    or disprove these hypotheses.
  • Cause children to understand the importance of evidence when making decisions
    and to be able to judge whether the claims of the media, advertisers, politicians,
    journalists, etc. are evidence- based and reliable.
  • Give students enough evidence-based knowledge to be able to make informed
    personal judgements in order to lead healthy, safe, comfortable and environmentally sustainable lives.
  • Develop awareness of the conclusions of important scientific theories in a concrete
    and accessible way.
