Overchurch Junior School


Science at OJS



Science LTP 24-25


At Overchurch Junior school, it is our intent to provide a science curriculum that  is inclusive to all our students.  Science is about children developing a sense of enquiry and extending their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. It includes knowledge about living things, materials, energy and the solar system. Science is concerned with investigation and children using their investigations and knowledge to understand how the world is constructed. Throughout the school, the children will be developing scientific skills that will lead to their work in planning and undertaking scientific investigations, as scientists.

Science is fun. Science is curiosity. We all have natural curiosity. Science is a process of investigating. It’s posing questions and coming up with a method. It’s delving in. – Sally Ride
