In Science we aim to stimulate and excite pupils’ curiosity about changes and events in the world, and to enable them to satisfy this curiosity with understanding. We link pupils’ understanding with scientific thought and allow them to develop a greater understanding of the world in which we live and their responsibility to ensure its sustainability. We believe that pupils should be engaged as learners at many levels through linking ideas with practical experience which develops the skills of enquiry, observation, research, experimentation, use of apparatus, measuring and checking results, making comparisons and communicating results and findings.
Children cover a range of topics in the Foundation Stage up to Year 6. These include Electricity, Solids and Liquids, Teeth and eating and Materials. Science teaching mostly takes place in the classroom; however at Dunsville Primary School, we are lucky enough to have our very own nature area that the children use to investigate wildlife when appropriate.
