Subject Leader - Mrs Hill



At Forefield Junior School we want children to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about their world and how it works. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. Science education at our school provides the basis for understanding the world through biology, chemistry and physics.

The curriculum builds up a solid foundation of knowledge and understanding - children are encouraged to use the power of reasoned explanation, using science to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

Children will engage in different types of science enquiries that will help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them so that they are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
