‘In Science we are …..launching the future’
An integrated Key stage Three Science course is delivered in Years 8, 9 and 10. It combines elements of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, as well as Investigative Science and ICT skills.
Pupils have opportunities to acquire practical scientific skills through a wide range of active learning strategies. This engages pupils to develop understanding of the processes of Science as well as content of scientific knowledge.
Our Key Stage Three Science programme is designed for our pupils:
To appreciate the role and importance of Science in the world around us
To stimulate curiosity and acquire skills of scientific enquiry to investigate new situations
To provide opportunities for pupils to develop practical skills including the safe use of scientific equipment
To enable pupils to think critically and apply problem solving knowledge in a methodical and analytical way
To become scientifically literate and therefore able contributors to our STEM based society.
