Science at Stonebroom Primary & Nursery School
Every child has a natural curiosity about the way the world works. At Stonebroom Primary & Nursery School we aim to develop pupils’ enjoyment and interest in science within all aspects of everyday life. Using a range of planned investigations and practical activities we build on pupils’ curiosity and sense of awe in the natural world. At the same time, the children are able to develop their ability to plan fair tests, make predictions, record results using ICT, diagrams, graphs, tables and charts and to make generalisations about their learning. We also value the use of scientific vocabulary and model this with our children, encouraging them to use it to explain their scientific thinking.
Science is taught in line with the new National Curriculum, following the ‘Rising Stars’ scheme of work. Scientific knowledge and understanding are assessed termly/half-termly and progress is measured throughout KS1 & 2.
