Junction Farm Primary School

Science

Science in our school is seen as an integral part of the curriculum. It addresses issues within topics, and is taught discretely as appropriate.

We intend to enable children to understand the world by showing them how to investigate it in a systematic fashion.

In order to do this we try to make use of the child’s natural curiosity.  Drawing on this curiosity we can help children to – observe, study, question, plan, investigate, experiment, relate finding, draw conclusions and understand and record how things are, what they have done and the ways in which things change.

Our areas of work are closely matched to the National Curriculum programmes of Study.

During Science lessons children will

  • Acquire and refine practical skills needed to investigate questions safely.
  • Develop skills of predicting, asking questions, making inferences, concluding and evaluating based on evidence and understanding and use these skills in investigative work.
  • Develop practical mathematical skills.
