Science at the Wye Forest Federation

Aims

At Wye Forest Federation, we are always striving to be the best we can be and we recognise how science impacts every aspect of our daily lives. We want our children to love science and as a core subject, we give the teaching and learning of science the prominence it deserves.

The science curriculum has been carefully crafted to enable learners to be active, excited and challenged while working within the parameters of our class structure and the National Curriculum. A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding our diverse world through the scientific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.

Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future health and prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science to allow them to engage with it. By building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes.

We endeavour to ensure that the Science curriculum we provide gives children the confidence, independence and sense of belonging to continue to further develop their skills into the next stage of their education and life experiences.
