Science at CJS
Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity. We encourage this inquisitiveness and develop pupils’ interest and enjoyment of Science by building on their interest with activities that inspire our pupils to experiment and investigate the world around them. We excite their enquiring minds by helping them to raise and pose their own questions such as “Why……?”, “How…?” and “What happens if…?” We ensure that the Working Scientifically skills are built-on and developed throughout the school so that pupils can apply their science knowledge when using equipment, conducting experiments, building arguments and explaining concepts confidently. Across the school, pupils learn about a wide range of living things, materials and physical phenomena. They make links between ideas and, with a broadening scientific vocabulary, explain things using simple models and theories. Through various trips and interactions with experts, children build the understanding that science has changed our lives and that it is vital to the world’s future prosperity.
