Science

Science teaches an understanding of natural phenomena. It aims to stimulate a child’s curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do. It teaches methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought. Children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way in which science will affect the future on a personal, national, and global level.

.

The objectives of teaching science are to enable children to:

  • ask and answer scientific questions;
  • plan and carry out scientific investigations, using equipment (including computers) correctly;
  • know and understand the life processes of living things;
  • know and understand the physical processes of materials, electricity, light, sound, and natural forces;
  • know about the nature of the solar system, including the earth;
  • evaluate evidence, and present their conclusions clearly and accurately.
