Bellefield Curriculum Overview

Science

Science is important at Bellefield because it gives our children the opportunity to develop enquiring minds that will enable them to be curious learners and understand the world around them. We aim for our children to be curious about the world and have a passion for learning about science. We aim for the children to develop their ability to think independently and raise questions they may have about the world. We aim for our children to have the scientific skills to be able to investigate these questions and to understand the implications of science for today and for the future.
