The purpose of science teaching at Oakwood Academy is to develop practical skills and an understanding of science knowledge, as well as stimulating an interest in the world in which they live.
We follow the National Curriculum and deliver lessons in a way that seeks to engage and challenge learners, linking practical experience with scientific ideas. Experimentation and modelling are used to develop and evaluate explanations, encouraging critical and creative thought.
Opportunities are planned for pupils to:
- Enquire, explore and observe so that they can ask questions about themselves and their environment
- Stimulate their curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do
- Appreciate the way Science will affect their future on a personal, national and global level.
