In Science at Swinnow Primary School we aim to stimulate a child’s curiosity to find out why things happen in the way they do through the use of high quality resources, hands-on experiences and exploration of the outdoor environment. We aim to provoke children to enquire, predict, investigate, ask scientific questions and evaluate evidence. Children learn about key scientists both past and present and begin to understand the way science will affect their future on a personal, national, and global level. The teaching of a wide range of Science topics enables children to know and understand the life processes of living things; know and understand the physical processes of materials, electricity, light, sound and natural forces; and know about the nature of the solar system, including the earth. Children learn skills to work both individually and collaboratively to plan, carry out and evaluate practical investigations selecting appropriate resources, including the use of ICT. We aim to ensure children treat the living and non-living environment with respect and sensitivity and recognise and assess risks and hazards to themselves and to others when working with living things and materials and to take action to control them.
