We believe that Science enables children to develop their curiosity and sense of enquiry, questioning their understanding of the world around them and extending their knowledge. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and exploring scientific concepts, pupils will develop a sense of excitement and wonder about natural phenomena.
At Bishop Bridgeman, we lay the foundation for a progressively deepening knowledge and understanding of scientific ideas that will be useful to children in later life. The embedding of scientific enquiry skills allows our children to use a variety of approaches to answer relevant scientific questions, bringing more meaning to the world in which they live.
We strive to inspire children by studying the achievements of notable scientists and how they continue to influence the world around us. We also try to provide a range of enriching activities, where possible, such as science visitors and trips.
Programme of Study:
We follow the programme of study set out in the National Curriculum, which ensures that all children can build upon their knowledge and ability to work scientifically, as they progress through the year groups.
