Science @ OMS

At Olney Middle School, we strive to provide an excellent science curriculum that develops curiosity and motivates resilient learners to understand the world around them. By working scientifically, the children will develop skills of observation, investigation and fair testing, enabling them to make predictions, analyse results and explain their findings through the use of scientific vocabulary.

Each year, the sequence of lessons will help to embed vital knowledge, with each lesson designed to build on previous learning. We believe that all children at Olney Middle School should have opportunities to develop scientific skill and become independent learners: acquiring knowledge through exciting and purposeful scientific enquiry, including drawing conclusions, developing investigative skills and the ability to generate questions and hypotheses.

The children at Olney Middle School will discover, appreciate and explain the uses and developments of science today and for the future.
