Science at the Oxford Road provides opportunities for children to develop a love of learning and a thirst for knowledge of the world around them. We place scientific enquiry at the heart of the curriculum with the processes and methods of science investigation being taught alongside the foundations of scientific knowledge and concepts for biology, chemistry and physics.


Through our teaching of Science at ORCS we aim for children to:

  • Develop children’s scientific skills, knowledge and understanding.
  • Develop each child’s ability to observe and find patterns in observation, raise questions, experiment and investigate, reason systematically and logically, solve problems and communicate findings.
  • Equip children to understand and use scientific vocabulary appropriately and accurately.
  • Give children opportunities to use and apply science in practical, real-life and problem-solving situations, using appropriate equipment.
  • Foster attitudes of curiosity, originality, co-operation, perseverance, open mindedness, self-criticism, responsibility and independence in thinking.
  • Provide our children with an enjoyable experience of science, so that they will develop a deep and lasting interest and may be motivated to study science further.
