At Brooke Primary School, we encourage children to be inquisitive and scientists throughout their time at the school and beyond. Children are encouraged to ask questions, be curious about their surroundings and acquire a love of science through a whole school ethos and a varied science curriculum.
Throughout the time at Brooke, children are given the opportunity to take part in hands on learning scientific experiments which will help to embed scientific enquiry skills. Science at Brooke gives children the chance to ask questions, investigate and learn through experiments, make observations and interpret data whilst recording data and evaluating their results. Children are taught key vocabulary which will help to enhance their learning experience through progression of the year groups building upon already existing knowledge. The key knowledge identified by each key stage is informed by the national curriculum and builds towards identified phase end points which can be shown in the document below.
Key skills are mapped for each year group and are progressive throughout the school depending on the class structure. It is important to us at Brooke that science learning is brought to life through ensuring access to people with specialist expertise and places of scientific interest. Cross curricular opportunities are identified, mapped and planned to ensure contextual relevance as often as possible.
Photos of scientific learning can be found on our Facebook page or if walking around the school be sure to check out our science display!
