Together we can achieve

Science

 

'Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge.' Stephen Hawking

In science pupils will have the opportunity to:

  • Ask simple questions and recognise that they can be answered in different ways
  • Observe closely, using simple equipment
  • Perform simple tests
  • Identify and classify
  • Use their observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions
  • Gather and record data to help answer questions

Pupils will be able to develop their skills as scientists by:

  • Using their five senses
  • Asking and answering questions
  • Making predictions about what they think might happen
  • Planning and investigating
  • Saying why and how things happen
  • Using a range of scientific equipment and resources
  • Recording their ideas and findings
  • Evaluating their own work and say how this can be improved
