At Tottington Primary School, we believe that a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future. All pupils are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building on foundational knowledge and concepts, children are encouraged to explain and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about the world around them. They are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes. It aims to build knowledge about the natural world. This knowledge is open to question and revision as we come up with new ideas and discover new evidence.
Science generates solutions for everyday life and helps us to answer the great mysteries of the universe. Science is undoubtedly one of the most important channels of knowledge.
It increases our fundamental knowledge, creates new technology, helps us dream up new applications. It is a great pathway to share ideas and gives us all a better world view.
