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 we aim to deliver a high-quality science education which provides the foundations for understanding the world.
In a rapidly evolving world of science it is our aim that science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about the phenomena and events in the world around them. As science links direct practical experiences with ideas, it can engage learners to many levels. Using a scientific method is about developing and evaluating explanations through experimental evidence and modelling. All pupils are encouraged to question and discuss scientific issues linked to everyday issues and those that affect the future of the world. The revisiting of skills learning throughout the key stages provides opportunities to secure knowledge to the long-term memory.
In key stage 1 pupils are encouraged to be curious and ask questions about what they notice. This includes observing changes over a period of time and noticing patterns as well. They also learn about seasonal changes and everyday materials.
In Key stage 2 pupils broaden their scientific view of the world by exploring, discussing, testing and developing ideas. They begin to ask questions, make observations and decisions about which types of scientific enquiry are the best ways of answering them.
All pupils’ learning is progressive, developmental and most of all stimulating to their general interest.
We aim to develop skills of creativity, perseverance and co-operation so that science enhances the child’s ability to learn confidently in the whole curriculum.
