At St Oswald's every class enjoys a weekly Science lesson (roughly 2 hours). Practial, fun lessons enable the children to begin to understand the world they live in and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity so all pupils are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Children are taught to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

The aims of the national curriculum are to:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • ensure the children are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

The children are assessed termly using the Assertive Mentoring Criteria (taken from the statements of the National Currciulum).
