Curriculum for Wales

Welsh National Curriculum

Science contributes to careers and the world of work by enabling learners to study a range of applications of science, medicine and technology in their everyday life and in the wider world. This gives learners insight into how scientists work and also develops experimental and generic skills needed for the world of work. (p9)

At Key Stage 2, learners should … be taught to relate their scientific skills, knowledge and understanding to applications of science in everyday life, including current issues. They should be taught to recognise that scientific ideas can be evaluated by means of information gathered from observations and measurements. …. They should be taught to value others’ views and show responsibility as local citizens. (p10)
