Science Curriculum

Super Science!

We offer children the opportunities to explore, investigate and enquire in Science at Redhill. Children develop an understanding of the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all children are taught the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through lessons taught we aim for children to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

At Redhill we support and develop children’s scientific knowledge and understanding in all areas of Science. Children are encouraged to develop their understanding of the processes and methods of Science through different types of Science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. We also equip children with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

We hope to inspire and motivate the children to maybe one day become a scientist and who knows, they could be responsible for the creation of new inventions or making history in Science!
