Science is an important part of our heritage and we use its applications every day in our lives at work, at leisure and in the home. Through learning in the sciences, children develop their interest in, and understanding of, the living, material and physical world. They engage in a wide range of collaborative, investigative tasks, which allows them to develop important skills to become creative, inventive and enterprising adults.
The key concepts within the Science Framework have been identified using five organisers:
- Planet Earth
- Forces, electricity and waves
- Biological Systems
- Topical Science
Different aspects of the Science Curriculum may be delivered as part of a class topic, or as a stand-alone, discrete programme of study. Children regularly go on science based educational outings and this has involved visits to the Science Centre, Deep Sea World and sea shores.
