Science is a wonderful subject to develop the key skills of curiosity, perseverance, reflecting and thinking! At Peartree Primary School, we aim for science to be as practical as possible, and as meaningful to everyday life as we can. As such, children enjoy science and the opportunities it brings for group work, investigation and knowledge acquisition; children love learning about how the world 'works'.

 

Our primary aim in science is we want children to be able to question about the world around them - and have strategies available to them in order to answer that question. These strategies could include investigation skills, but also the ability to use technology in order to develop thinking and knowledge.

 

Across the school, children follow the content of the National Curriculum for England, with some additional science learning which our school sees as important for our children in order for our wider class 'topics' to be fully developed. Science encourages children to:

  • pose questions;
  • make reasoned predictions;
  • develop methods to answer questions;
  • conduct fair testing;
  • collect results and
  • draw conclusions.
