The importance of science cannot be underestimated and it is important in all our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. Science is a core subject and children will be taught the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses in science lessons. Children will build up a body of key knowledge and concepts. The children will develop a sense of excitement and curiosity and be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation. During science lessons pupils will be encouraged to explain and predict and analyse what they are learning about. Through the national curriculum for science which covers a broad spectrum of topics the pupils will be encouraged to be ‘working scientifically’.
