The aims of teaching science are:

  • Develop inquiring minds and curiosity about science and the natural world. 
  • Appreciate the benefits and limitations of science and its application in technological developments. 
  • Demonstrate attitudes and develop values of honesty and respect for themselves, others, and their shared environment.

 

Throughout your child’s journey at Rucstall they will develop through a progression of skills.

  • Develop skills of scientific inquiry to design and carry out scientific investigations and evaluate scientific evidence to draw conclusions. 
  • Think analytically, critically and creatively to solve problems, judge arguments and make decisions in scientific and other contexts. 
  • Communicate scientific ideas, arguments and practical experiences accurately in a variety of ways.
