“The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.”

Sir William Bragg.

At Park View Academy, we believe that learning about science is like discovering the magic of the world around us! Science helps us understand the way things work, from the twinkling stars in the night sky to the tiny bugs in our gardens. It’s like a treasure hunt, where we gather knowledge and solve mysteries. But science is not just about fun experiments; it’s also a superpower for our future. When we learn science, we’re preparing ourselves to be problem-solvers and inventors. We can find cures for illnesses, protect our environment, and even travel to new planets one day. So, remember, the more you learn about science now, the more amazing things you can do in the future!

Science is a core subject because it opens the door to endless wonder and discovery. It helps young minds ask questions, seek answers, and understand the world around them. Through hands-on experiments and exciting lessons, students learn about the forces of nature, the secrets of the universe, and the incredible diversity of life on our planet. Science not only sparks curiosity but also builds critical thinking skills, problem-solving abilities, and a love for learning. It’s a fundamental foundation for a future filled with endless possibilities and the key to making the world a better place.

At Park View we believe science is an essential part of our pupil’s development, from the Early years to key stage 2. In EYFS, Science is taught discreetly through Understanding the World and continuous provision. As the pupils move into key stage 1 they begin their scientific learning journey, spending an hour each week focusing on our Dean Trust science curriculum. Pupils in key stage 2 spend an hour and a half per week on science, focusing heavily on different types of scientific enquiry and honing their scientific skills.

We are a partnership school with the Ogden Trust. The Ogden aims to increase the uptake of physics post-16 by supporting physics education and engagement for all young people (4-18), particularly those in under-represented groups. The Trust supports schools, teachers, projects and programmes that are committed to enhancing physics teaching and learning.
