Science – curriculum information

Our vision is to inspire the next generation of Scientists through asn exciting and stimulating Science curriculum!

Our aim is to ensure that all children build a core body of scientific knowledge, vocabulary and skills so that they may understand and apply science in everyday life.

We provide meaningful hands-on experiences, rooted in inquiry-based learning so that our pupils develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about science within the world in which we live.”

What do pupils at Adelaide think about our science curriculum –

“I like learning all about the world and how things work.”

“I love it when we have science all week and we do lots of experiments!”

“It really makes your brain think, about how the plants and trees grow.”

“We do lots of science and I really like doing experiments with my friends.”

‘The highly successful promotion of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is at the heart of the school’s work’…
