At Birch Copse, we believe that Science provides children with the opportunity to understand the world around them and provides an exciting context to apply many of the other skills and disciplines they learn at school. The science National Curriculum identifies three key areas in which the children should be taught: knowledge and understanding; working scientifically and the application of Science. We have developed a carefully sequenced Science curriculum that ensures children cover these three aims in an accessible, creative and engaging way throughout their time at Birch Copse. We believe that children learn science best by doing and seeing; by providing the children with a range of opportunities to actively carry out different types of scientific enquiries, we ensure that working scientifically and application of knowledge is embedded into the heart of our Science curriculum.
