Our primary aim in science is for children to be able to question the world around them - and have strategies available to them to answer that question.
In our 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.
Across our school we have developed a common approach to scientific investigation. All children should be confident in:
- Posing questions
- Making reasoned predictions
- Developing methods to answer questions
- Fair testing
- Collecting results
- Drawing conclusions
By the time children leave us in Year 6 we would expect children to be able to achieve national expectations set by the DFE. These skills will ensure that children are ready for secondary school.
