At Brampton Village Primary School, we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life.
The Scientific area of learning is concerned with increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of our world, and with developing skills associated with Science as a process of enquiry. It will develop the natural curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence.
At Brampton Village Primary School, in conjunction with the aims of the National Curriculum, our Science teaching offers opportunities for children to:
- develop an enthusiasm and enjoyment of scientific learning and discovery, by actively engaging and asking questions;
- develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them;
- be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future;
- use a range of methods to communicate their scientific information and present it in a systematic, scientific manner, including I.C.T., diagrams, graphs and charts;
- develop a respect for the materials and equipment they handle with regard to their own, and other children’s safety;
The National Curriculum will provide a structure and skill development for the science curriculum being taught throughout the school, which may be linked, where possible to the theme topics to provide a creative scheme of work, which reflects a balanced programme of study.
