At Broughton Primary School, we believe that science enables our children to develop a strong sense of enquiry and curiousity which supports them in extending their knowledge and understanding of the world around them and promotes respect for the living/non-living.
Anna Bewsher - Science Subject Leader
Through our school Science Curriculum, we aim to support our pupils in developing a natural curiosity and promote enthusiasm and enjoyment of scientific learning and discovery. We want our pupils to develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding of the nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. Through our progressive, enquiry-based framework, children will develop knowledge of scientists and take part in science events. Concepts taught should be reinforced by focusing on the key features of scientific enquiry, so that pupils learn to use a variety of approaches to answer relevant scientific questions. Alongside developing their scientific skills, pupils will develop a strong sense of how science shapes many everyday things and how Science and STEM will impact on their future
