Science is a subject that allows children to explore and understand the world around them. It nurtures a child’s natural curiosity and helps them to find answers to the questions they have.
Within science, there are three separate disciplines; biology, chemistry and physics. Biology looks at the natural world, the living things that exist within it and their interactions. In chemistry pupils look closely at the different materials around us and what they can be used for. In physics pupils investigate forces and energy, from tiny particles to planets and stars. In addition to these, pupils will also learn how a scientist is able to safely investigate a hypothesis and analyse results.
