'To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.’Albert Einstein
Science is a body of knowledge built up through discovering the world around us, through exploring, asking questions, observing, testing and developing ideas and through making links with what children discover to scientific concepts. This is central to the teaching of the 2014 National Curriculum for science at Park End Primary School. Through building up a body of key knowledge and concepts of biology, chemistry and physics, pupils will be encouraged to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about the world around them, whilst engaging in the practical aspects of science.
At Park End Primary, our vision is to inspire pupils to foster a love of science and develop the necessary knowledge and skills needed to prepare them for life beyond school.
Therefore, our intent statement sets out to:
Teachers create a positive attitude to science learning within their classrooms and reinforce an expectation that all children are capable of achieving high standards in science. Our whole school approach to the teaching and learning of science involves the following;
Our Science Curriculum is high quality, well thought out and is planned to demonstrate progression. We measure the impact of our science curriculum through the following methods:
