At St. Oswald’s, we follow the National Curriculum for science ensuring all pupils develop their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding. We aim to harness the children’s natural excitement and curiosity so lessons are hands-on where possible, giving pupils practical opportunities to develop their ‘working scientifically’ skills. Having superb school grounds and a pond on site is and invaluable resource is available to all Year groups, ensuring they have a real setting in which to base their investigations.
We aim to enhance learning experiences in school through expert visitors and educational visits. We encourage all children to see themselves as scientists and aspire to make them aware of the diverse careers available to everyone.
