Science at Falcons
In our Science lessons we will:
- Think of our own questions and work together to find the answers to them.
- Investigate ideas practically and try things out for ourselves.
- Work collaboratively and discuss our ideas and findings.
- Not limit our science learning to just the classroom.
- Solve “real life” science problems.
- Use our literacy and numeracy skills in our science lessons.
Purpose of study
A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
The programmes of study describe a sequence of knowledge and concepts. While it is important that pupils make progress, it is also vitally important that they develop secure understanding of each key block of knowledge and concepts in order to progress to the next stage.
Pupils should be able to describe associated processes and key characteristics in common language, but they should also be familiar with, and use, technical terminology accurately and precisely. They should build up an extended specialist vocabulary. They should also apply their mathematical knowledge to their understanding of science, including collecting, presenting and analysing data.
