The Rose Report

 

Area of learning:

Scientific and technological understanding

 

Learning in this area should include an appropriate balance of focused subject teaching and well-planned opportunities to use, apply and develop knowledge and skills across the whole curriculum.

 

Why this area of learning is important

 

It offers a wealth of experiences and ideas that encourage children's natural curiosity and creativity, inspiring awe and wonder.

 

.....inspiring them to become the scientists, engineers, designers and innovators of the future....

Children live in an age of fast-moving science and design and technology. This area of learning is fundamental to exploring, understanding and influencing the natural and made worlds in which we live. It offers a wealth of experiences and ideas that encourage children's natural curiosity and creativity, inspiring awe and wonder. Science supports the development of technology and advances in technology lead to new scientific discoveries, shaping how we live safe and healthy lives in our rapidly changing society.

This area of learning helps children to find new ways of looking at the world and to engage with changing explanations about how the world works. They learn to value ideas and to see talking, thinking and imagining as essential elements in developing understanding and new processes.

Children tackle problems, forming questions, generating and testing ideas and designs and deciding how to seek solutions. They gather and make sense of evidence, test out hypotheses and evaluate processes and outcomes. They learn the possibilities of science, design and technology, inspiring them to become the scientists, engineers, designers and innovators of the future and how to be informed citizens responsive to the needs of others and the world in which they live.
