Striving to be the best that we can be

Science

At Grange Park Junior School, we aim to provide a learning environment which encourages curiosity, courage, determination and co-operation. We want to ensure that we provide a broad and balanced learning experience for all our pupils, and opportunities to develop skills and gain an understanding of science concepts through first-hand experience and practical work.

 

Our aims in teaching science include:

  • building on children’s natural curiosity and developing a scientific approach to problems
  • encouraging a thirst for knowledge, perseverance and responsibility
  • preparing children for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world
  • learning about and engaging in concerns about our environment
  • giving children the experience of scientific processes
  • helping children to acquire practical science skills
  • providing children with an enjoyable experience of Science, so that they will develop a deep and lasting interest and be motivated to study science further.

 

Pupils will be given opportunities to:

  • develop their understanding through systematic enquiry
  • relate their work in science to everyday life
  • consider simple scientific ideas and collect evidence to test scientific ideas in a variety of ways
  • communicate scientific ideas and observations using appropriate scientific vocabulary
  • present information in a variety of ways including drawings, diagrams, tables and charts and in speech and writing
  • consider health and safety in the context of their science work and take action to control risks
  • find out about scientific ideas and theories based upon famous scientists from past or present.
