It is the aim of the school to provide the children with all the scientific skills and knowledge for all learning opportunities. Areas of the previous years summer learning will be interwoven into learning during the next academic year to ensure children are fully equipped with the skills to access their year groups curriculum.
At Bromet Primary School, we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. As one of the core subjects taught in Primary Schools, we give the teaching and learning of Science the prominence it requires. The Scientific area of learning is concerned with increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of our world, and with developing skills associated with Science as a process of enquiry. It will develop the natural curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence.
In carefully planned sequences of lessons, children are hooked into learning through exciting starters. Lessons are progressive, meaning that over time children deepen their understanding through high level questioning, practical lessons, research and creative recording of their ideas. Much of science lends itself to outdoor learning so we aim to provide children with opportunities to experience this where possible. Children are introduced to well know figures in Science and we ensure that there is diversity within this showing that anyone can be a Scientist!
Through discussion and feedback, children talk enthusiastically about their Science lessons and show a genuine curiosity and interest in the areas they have explored.
"Science is my favourite lesson! I love learning new facts!" (Falcon Class)
"My teacher made Science really fun while we were learning at home. We had so many experiments to do; it was great!" (Kestrel Class)
"When we made the model of the heart it really helped me to remember the 4 chambers of the heart and what they're called; left ventricle, right ventricle, left atrium and right atrium." (Eagle Class)
