Science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity.
At Larmenier & Sacred Heart all children are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, children are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. Children are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
The school’s science curriculum is designed to ensure key concepts are revisited over time – with increased cognitive challenge – so that children have the opportunity to make connections, deepen and embed knowledge in long-term memory.
