It is the aim of Christ Church to give every child the opportunity to develop an awareness of the importance of science in everyday life and the science careers that link to the topics they are studying. Science teaching at Christ Church is designed to develop the natural curiosity found in all young children and to teach them to approach a problem in a scientific way, which will involve them developing key scientific skills. In lessons, children will use a range of practical enquiry work that supports the working scientifically aspect of learning. Children will have an opportunity to express their findings and ideas to others in writing, orally and through drawings, charts and models. The areas of scientific knowledge are broad and balanced and are based on the framework outlined by the National Curriculum. Ofsted commended that lessons are based on practical investigations and observations and high-quality challenging questioning from teachers.
