Aristotle

Science

At Newbold Church School, Science allows every pupil to develop a deeper understanding of the world in which they live. Through a stimulating curriculum, we provide memorable learning experiences allowing all pupils to discover, question and develop their curiosity, knowledge and bank of core skills which will equip them for an ever-changing world. 

Science is developing children’s scientific knowledge and understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science, for now and the future. 

Our aim is for science to be taught as part of an inspirational and stimulating curriculum, through the delivery of a sequence of lessons building on previous learning. 

At Newbold Church School, we encourage children to be inquisitive throughout their time at the school and beyond. The science curriculum fosters a healthy curiosity in children about our universe and promotes respect for the living and non-living. We believe science encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes. Equipped with these skills and opportunities, our pupils will be confident lifelong learners, exploring the world around them.

Working Scientifically skills are embedded into lessons to ensure these skills are being developed throughout the children’s school career and new vocabulary and challenging concepts are introduced through direct teaching. This is developed through the years, in-keeping with the topics.

The successful approach at Newbold Church School results in a fun, engaging, high-quality science education which provides children with the foundations and knowledge for understanding the world. 

 

Our science curriculum encompasses the aims of the National Curriculum.
