Wherever you look, whatever you do and wherever you go, Science is all around us. Human nature is to be curious about the world we live in and children enjoy exploring and asking questions. From an early age we encourage children to ask ‘Why?’ As educators we may not always have the answer but it is fun finding out and making sense of what is happening around us.
At Dymchurch Primary School, Science is taught with adherence to the National Curriculum, with support from the Kent Science Scheme. The National Curriculum emphasises skills in ‘Working Scientifically’ to underpin and apply ‘Knowledge and Understanding’. Scientific enquiry is at the heart of our curriculum at Dymchurch as we believe the skills to work scientifically are widely transferrable and are key in paving the way for many future career paths. A breakdown of units covered in each year group is available in the Science overview.
