‘Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity and is the torch which illuminates the world.’
When our pupils leave Clehonger Primary, we want them to be fully prepared to embark on the next stage of their school career and access science at high school as well as being prepared and aware of the possibilities for careers in science in later life.
We endeavour to ensure that the science curriculum we provide will give pupils the confidence and motivation to continue to further develop their skills into the next stage of their education and life experiences.
We encourage pupils to be inquisitive throughout their time at the school and beyond.
The Science curriculum fosters a healthy curiosity in pupils about our universe and promotes respect for the living and non-living. We believe science encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes.
Here, our pupils will acquire and develop the key knowledge that has been identified within each unit and across each year group, as well as the application of scientific skills. We ensure that the 'Working Scientifically' skills are built-on and developed throughout pupils' time at the school so that they can apply their knowledge of science when using equipment, conducting experiments, building arguments and explaining concepts confidently and continue to ask questions and be curious about their surroundings.
