Children today need to be prepared for the challenges of tomorrow – at Bishops Down we believe that engaging practical science lessons throughout Primary school will help achieve this. Through cross-curricular approaches, such as in P.E, Maths and PSHE, children will be able to identify that Science is happening all around them! As a result of this, we believe that we are enhancing each child’s cultural capital.
Why learn science? It enables us to ask questions and answer questions about how the world works, it helps children to develop their problem solving skills, allows an awareness of technology and gives children the knowledge to protect and conserve the world around them. We aim to provide children with scientific links to real life so that they can leave Bishops Down well prepared for their lives ahead of them.
Science at Bishops Down is supported by the Cornerstones Curriculum tool.
