Science teaches an understanding of natural phenomena. It aims to stimulate a child’s curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do. it teaches methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought. Children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way science will affect their future.
At Moss Hall School, we use the national curriculum scheme of work as the basis of our curriculum planning. Wherever possible, science lessons are planned to support the creative curriculum. Scientific enquiry is integrated throughout the curriculum and includes a range of different types of enquiry as appropriate for different topics.
