At Bishop’s Castle Primary School, we have designed our science curriculum with the intent that all children, regardless of background, will develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Through different types of science enquiries children will answer scientific questions about the world around them.   


We aim to ensure that our science teaching and learning activities encourage children to be curious and to ask questions about the world they live in.  Our aim is to encourage children to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes, so they think critically and have a deeper understanding of the world now and equip them for the future.


Science holds numerous opportunities for children to be active learners and to learn experientially. They work independently and with others, widen their horizons, develop communication and language skills, apply mathematical and scientific knowledge, plus explore their own creativity. Children are encouraged to ask their own questions, try ideas and learn from mistakes, innovating and suggesting improvements.


Children are encouraged to strive to create the best outcomes they can of which they will be rightly proud and thereby developing positive attitudes to learning.
