Science is a wonderful subject to develop the key skills of curiosity, perseverance, reflecting and thinking!
In accordance to our curriculum intent we feel science should:
HEAD: Use knowledge acquisition and apply within investigative activities
HEART: Be meaningful to everyday life and develop learning about how the world works
HANDS: Be as practical as possible and allow pupils to enjoy science
Our primary aim in science is for children to be able to question about the world around them - and have strategies available to them in order to answer that question.
Across our school we have developed a common approach to scientific investigation and is progressively built upon until children are fully confident in:
- Posing questions
- Making reasoned predictions
- Developing methods to answer questions
- Fair testing
- Collecting results
- Drawing conclusions
