Science at The Berkeley 

At The Berkeley we believe that the development of scientific skills is a crucial, core entitlement for all of our pupils. Science stimulates and excites pupil curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. It also satisfies their curiosity with knowledge. Because science links direct, practical experience with ideas, it can engage learners at many levels. Pupils recognise the cultural significance of science and trace its worldwide development. In line with our Curriculum Drivers the children will learn to question and discuss science based issues that may affect their own lives, the direction of society and future of the world.

 

Our Aims are to:

  • Develop an awareness and understanding of the role and importance of science in everyday life

  • Appreciate and tolerate the constantly changing nature of scientific knowledge

  • Use scientific procedures of investigation

  • Introduce, develop and study the application of science in a broad range of contexts

  • Understand some of the current major concepts of science

  • Understand that learning science contributes to personal development including problem solving skills and cooperative group work
