Science Curriculum

Why science?


“Science gives you understanding, and understanding….not only gives you power, but it also gives you a heck of a lot of fun!  Almost everything we do in the modern world has a science underlying it. …You have to know something about it in order to make up your own mind.”   

Sir David Attenborough


Blackpool teachers say that science gives children opportunities to…

  • ask questions – be curious, be inquisitive.

  • gain confidence to explore through trial and error.

  • gain a desire to find out more.

  • understand risk and cause and effect.

  • gain knowledge and understanding of the world around them.

  • acquire skills and the ability to enquire.

  • have fun – enjoy learning.

  • progress to a wide range and breadth of jobs that are based on what is learned through science.  Our pupils are our future doctors, engineers, physicists, …

  • solve real world problems.


“Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.”  Carl Sagan
