Why do we learn science?
At Brunel, we place great value on the importance of the teaching and learning of science to support all pupils to understand the world around them. We intend for pupils to have the knowledge they need to work scientifically in a meaningful way. We have a coherently planned and sequenced curriculum, which has been carefully designed and developed with the need of every child atits core.
The curriculum is not only based on the minimum statutory requirements of the Science National Curriculum but has been developed to challenge and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of later life. We teach this by presenting the curriculum through a variety of engaging activities and a rich range of experiences. Children will become effective communicators in science by presenting their ideas and understanding in different ways. We believe that all pupils are entitled to understand how Science works in their own lives and within their local, national and global communities. We meet the needs of all pupils and make Science accessible to all children through a creative and engaging scheme of work. This enables us to support all pupils, regardless of need, in developing positive attitudes towards science, encouraging a natural curiosity in the pupils and a respect for the world around them. We aim to give our pupils the opportunities and the knowledge to become scientifically literate and encourage them to be the scientists of the future.
