At North Downs, we believe in delivering a high-quality Science education.  Ensuring children have a clear understanding of the world around them, through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science is vital to the world’s future prosperity, therefore all pupils will be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.We believe that it is vitally important that children develop a secure understanding of each key block of knowledge and concepts, in order to progress from one stage to the next.  ‘Working scientifically’, which specifies the understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science for each year group, will be embedded within all aspects of Science, focusing on the key features of scientific enquiry, so that pupils learn to use a variety of approaches to answer relevant scientific questions, using a ‘hands on’ approach, wherever possible. This will enable

Children to develop a sense of excitement, inquisitively and curiosity about everything around them.
