At Keevil Church of England Academy we believe that science is a key part of a child’s education. We aim to engender a curiosity about the world around us, and teach children how to find answers to their questions through a scientific process. We follow the National Curriculum, and have adapted some of our units of work to reflect the new content of Curriculum 2014. Through our topics we cover a breadth of subject knowledge and concepts from all aspects of science – physics, chemistry and biology. An important aspect of all science units of work is teaching the children how to ‘work scientifically’, and lessons across the school have a strong practical element. We also ran a very successful ‘Science Week’ in 2013, with the aim of increasing children’s excitement and enjoyment of the subject whilst broadening their knowledge. We hope to organise further events in the future.
