Introduction to Science across the school


At Christ The King, we have an aim to develop our children in to scientists who can work in an independent and explorative way, encouraging them to question; to discover and to analyse and evaluate. We want our children to be able to work scientifically by using the correct vocabulary and understanding the importance of method when conducting experiments. We facilitate their scientific learning through careful planning which ensures the discovery of processes for themselves. We want our children to be able to understand science by generating and answering questions!


The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
