At Kerem School, science is taught in a fun and exciting way.
We aim to develop and broaden the children’s scientific view of the world around them through the processes and strategies of investigation and discovery. An emphasis is placed on ‘working scientifically’ through inspirational and engaging activities.
Spoken language and collaborative learning are highly valued throughout science lessons, as this not only encourages children to explore scientific vocabulary but also to share and develop their ideas with others. They are encouraged to hypothesise, experiment to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, analyse causes and draw conclusions.
Pupils are taught essential aspects of scientific knowledge and understanding, processes and methods of science, enabling them to understand the implications of science today and for the future. To support this, we also provide children with hands-on experiences through educational visits. Children are encouraged to investigate and explore beyond their classroom environment.
