“The science of today is the technology of tomorrow.” Edward Teller
At Oakwood, we are extremely passionate about science. We continue to develop an inspiring curriculum, offering our pupils many opportunities to gain scientific knowledge, understanding and skills through the teaching of biology, chemistry and physics.
Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. By emphasising the importance of science, we aim to foster a deep curiosity for the scientific world and to strive for excellence, potentially leading to future careers connected with Science.
We follow the National Curriculum and supplement our planning with the Kent Scheme of Work. We also use other resources e.g STEM.org.uk and the Royal Society of Chemistry. This enables our curriculum to be flexible, innovative and exciting which suits the ever changing needs of all children.
Teamwork plays a role in the teaching and learning in science. Children work together to develop a fair test in their investigations, they evaluate their findings and formulate conclusions. A sense of pride is fostered through the presentation of their results and in making links with other subjects.
