At Pucklechurch Primary School our vision is to provide children with a Science curriculum that broadens their minds and makes abstract concepts come to life through investigations and outdoor learning opportunities. Our aim is that these experiences will develop the children’s interest in Science and encourage them to become lifelong learners who pose interesting questions and are able to think critically.
‘Working scientifically’ sits at the heart of our Science teaching and learning ethos. This means that children are given the opportunity and freedom to explore the world around them and raise their own questions and ideas. Children experience different types of scientific enquiries, including practical activities, and recognise ways in which they might answer scientific questions. Furthermore children learn to identify, classify and describe living things and materials, and identify patterns that might be found in the natural environment. Children work in their hub groups and, over a 2 year rolling program, cover all units in the National Curriculum for their age group.
