The science curriculum at Wethersfield is based on the National Curriculum.
It provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics and builds upon the children’s natural curiosity about the world and how it works. All pupils are taught the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, uses and processes of science.
We encourage the children to ask questions, and to find out their answers through first hand experiences, a range of investigations and practical activities. They will develop their ability to plan fair tests, make predictions and record their results in a variety of ways. They are encouraged to become independent learners and to work co-operatively with respect for the ideas of others.
In their lessons they become familiar with scientific vocabulary and are encouraged to use it to explain their scientific thinking.
The children will have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities during science week and explore how science is used in the every day life.
