Our Curriculum


Oobleck in science club

At Synergy Schools, it is our intent to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst equipping them with the skills and knowledge to help them think scientifically.

We encourage children to have an inquisitive mind and we strive to foster a healthy curiosity about our universe, whilst ensuring children gain an understanding of scientific processes. We strive to ensure children are equipped with an understanding of the use and implications of Science, today and for the future exploring their own scientific understanding though the use of ICT and classroom experiments. 

We believe that engagement within science lessons will lead to a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us, when children are given the opportunity to develop an inquisitive mind. Science lessons provide opportunities to appreciate scientific facts and concepts, and experience and appreciate scientific discoveries.

Children will be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes, and uses of science as well as learning about key scientists from the past and present. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils will be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.

The National Curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry, and physics
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes, and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future
