Science at Whitchurch Combined School


Science teaches the foundations for understanding the world through early specific areas of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It encourages children to find out about why things happen in the way they do. It teaches methods of enquiry and investigation. Children should learn the early knowledge and concepts, whilst developing a sense of curiosity about natural phenomena. The children should be encouraged to explore, question, and explain what they are seeing, to predict how things will behave and analyse causes.


At Whitchurch School we follow the statutory guidance for Science as stated in the New Primary Curriculum 2014.





The aims of teaching Science are:


  • To involve the children in practical investigations that develop skills, knowledge and understanding of Science.
  • To promote scientific methods of enquiry and research.
  • To teach children how to communicate ideas effectively, making use of subject-specific vocabulary.
  • To develop an understanding of the relevance of Science in everyday contexts.
  • To help the children acquire knowledge of a range of scientific concepts.
  • To help the children to understand that scientific knowledge relies on evidence.
  • Familiarise children with the importance of famous scientists.
  • To make the children aware of health and safety issues.
