Primary Science Curriculum
A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity; it is therefore essential that our students understand aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, we encourage our students to use the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
In the ever-changing and technology reliant world that we live in, this knowledge and skills bank will not only be essential for navigating decision making and new technologies that our students are faced with, but the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) job sector is growing and in need of new talent!
At King’s Academy Binfield and King's Academy Oakwood we aim to teach Science by incorporating as much practical work as possible. We believe that students learn best when they can see, hear and smell the science happening around them! With a focus on “working scientifically” students learn how to plan investigations, analyse data and interpret their results in a way that embeds the practical side of science into the rest of the curriculum.
