Subject Statement

Science at Burnside will develop pupils’ understanding of the big ideas in each subject area (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) and their application of these ideas to the wider world.

Pupils who are successful in their Science studies at Burnside should be able to:

  • Develop a conceptual understanding of Science and their scientific knowledge.
  • Develop and learn to apply observational, practical, modelling, enquiry and problem solving skills.
  • Develop the ability to evaluate claims based on science through critical analysis of the methodology, evidence and conclusions, both qualitatively and quantitatively.
  • See how Science is used in everyday life.
