At Byron Primary School, we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. We aim to develop the natural curiosity of our children and an enthusiasm and enjoyment of scientific learning and discovery. We will also encourage our children to respect their physical environment. Our intention is to provide opportunities for all our children to develop the essential scientific enquiry skills to deepen their scientific knowledge and help them to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them.
We will help children to communicate their ideas in Science using appropriate scientific vocabulary, use a range of methods to communicate their scientific information and present it in a systematic way. We will provide enrichment opportunities to enhance the Science curriculum by developing partnerships with STEM and the Science Media Museum and through educational workshops.
We endeavour to ensure that the Science curriculum will give children the confidence and motivation to continue to further develop their skills into the next stage of their education and life experience.
