Curriculum - Science

Our school employs a specialist Science Teacher, who takes responsibility for planning teaching, assessing and reporting on this subject throughout the school.

All classes attend a 1 hour Science lesson each fortnight. The purpose of our Science Program is to enable all children to:

  • Develop an interest in the natural environment and to help them to become more aware of the role they play in helping to protect it. 
  • Develop confidence and competence in using appropriate resources.
  • Develop co-operative skills which will enable them to solve scientific problems.
  • Communicate scientific understanding using appropriate scientific language to a range of audiences



The Science Program incorporates the following dimensions:

  • Science knowledge and understanding
  • Science at work
