“Science is about exploring, and the only way to uncover the secrets of the universe is to go and look.”
At Spring Brook Lower, our teaching of Science is all about:
• asking questions
• performing simple tests
• using ideas to suggest answers.
It is our aim across the Primary phase to:
• build up key foundational knowledge and concepts
• encourage pupils to recognise the power of rational explanation
• develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena
Science Lessons at Spring Brook Lower
Lessons are planned to include age appropriate content but taught at the child’s individual level so that they can access new knowledge, build on prior learning and continue to develop their scientific skills.
Teachers will engage and motivate pupils through practical investigations where appropriate and will recap concepts where necessary to close gaps in previous learning or correct possible scientific misconceptions.
Teachers will deliver high quality teaching and learning opportunities where activities are differentiated so that all children can have an appropriate level of support and challenge.
