At Teynham Parochial CE Primary School we aim to deliver a high-quality science education, providing understanding of the world. We do this through the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and continues to do so, being vital to the world’s future prosperity. All pupils are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. As your child progresses through our school they build up a body of knowledge and concepts. Your child will be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They will be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
They will take part in different types of scientific enquiry, including observations over time, pattern seeking, identifying, classifying and grouping, comparative and fair testing and researching using secondary sources. Your child will seek answers to questions through collecting, analysing and presenting data.
Our science curriculum reflects the importance of spoken language in your child’s development across the whole curriculum – cognitively, socially and linguistically. We recognise the importance of the quality and variety of language that your child hears and speaks, in developing their scientific vocabulary and articulating scientific concepts clearly and precisely.
By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.
