Science helps to prepare Bilbrook students for British life by helping them to understand the spiritual conflicts that science can cause in modern society and providing knowledge to enable them to respect the views of others and move forward.
In Science, at Bilbrook CE Middle, we intend to foster a healthy curiosity in children about our universe encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence. We believe science encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes about themselves and the world around them. The Science Curriculum at Bilbrook follows the National Curriculum that aims to ensure that all children develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
The implementation of the Science curriculum is centered around the key knowledge that needs to be learnt as well as the application off scientific skills. We ensure that the Working Scientifically skills are built-on and developed throughout the curriculum so that they can apply their knowledge of science when using equipment, conducting experiments, building arguments and explaining concepts. Biology, chemistry and Physics are taught on a rotation throughout the year with a spaced learning approach so that concepts are revisited regularly.
The impact is that children leave Bilbrook CE Middle School having a greater understanding of themselves and the world around them, so that they can make informed decisions, and understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
