Science at New Road Primary School

Our Vision

Our vision is to immerse our children in the world of science:  to use experiential learning to promote natural curiosity, to know, understand and practice the 5 elements of science investigation and to develop a scientific vocabulary by using a hands on approach to learning. The school Growth Mindset ethos will promote independence, resilience and perseverance within Science. 

 

 

Rationale

Science is a systematic investigation of the physical, chemical and biological aspects of the world which relies on first hand experiences and on other sources of information. The scientific process and pupils’ problem-solving activities will be used to deepen their understanding of the concepts involved. 

 

Aims

·     to develop pupils’ enjoyment and interest in science and an appreciation of its contribution to all aspects of life. 

·     to build on pupils’ curiosity through exploration. 

·     to use investigations and practical activities to give pupils a greater understanding of the concepts and deepen knowledge of science

·     to immerse all children in the vocabulary of science.

·     to develop pupils’ basic practical skills and their ability to make accurate and appropriate measurements

·     to develop pupils’ use of computing in their science studies.

 

·     to encourage independent thinking and develop children’s ability to draw conclusions and ask questions of results. 

 

British Science Week

As part of British Science Week, a ‘Science Selfie’ competition will be taking place. Children are asked to take a selfie of themselves taking part in a Science activity or exploring Science at home or outdoors. These will be displayed on the Science board in the hall and a winner will be chosen from each year group.
