Our intent for science at Devonshire Junior Academy is to inspire the next generation of scientists through an immersive and investigative curriculum. We hope to ignite a thirst for knowledge and develop curious minds that want to learn more about the world around them. At Devonshire Junior Academy, we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. As one of the core subjects taught in Primary Schools, we give the teaching and learning of Science the prominence it requires. The Scientific area of learning is concerned with increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of our world, and with developing skills associated with Science as a process of inquiry. Our curriculum will develop the natural scientific curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence.
