The aim of our Science teaching is to provide first hand learning experiences and to develop scientific knowledge of the physical world.
We feel that pupils achieve this by:-
- learning about the world around them.
- looking at materials, feeling them, talking about them and asking questions.
- collecting things and sorting them.
- trying things out.
- talking about what they have noticed.
- making things work.
- trying to suggest explanations about why things have happened.
- taking things apart and thinking about how they work.
- testing out their own ideas or ideas suggested by the teacher.
We aim to increase pupils' knowledge by following a structured scheme of work and develop the skills, concepts and attitudes mentioned above by well-planned, practical experiences that allow opportunities to discuss and reflect on what they have learned.
