At Christchurch Primary School, our science curriculum provides opportunities for children to develop a natural curiosity about the world around them and encourages children to ask questions and make observations as well as analyse their findings.
We aim to nurture children’s excitement to find out more and in our science lessons children are taught to work scientifically, building on key skills such as making predictions, designing experiments and practical investigations and using science to explain what they have found out.
Children are taught science in weekly lessons where their ideas and findings are recorded in a ‘floorbook’ to promote collaborative learning and discussion. At Christ Church, all of our science lessons are underpinned by our Science vision. Our vision incorporates our shared principals of ‘children doing’, learning practically and working together.
