Science at Victoria Primary school is designed to create a sense of awe and wonder. It makes children curious about the world around them and makes them want to find out more. It should guide the children in solving problems to do with the physical, natural and human worlds. Science encourages children to be critical, creative and reflective thinkers, and encourages them to take risks in order to improve.
To fulfil these aims, children need to acquire both factual knowledge and the skills of scientific enquiry; identifying questions that can be addressed scientifically; planning and carrying out experiments; evaluating data and recognising the limitations of their own and others’ work.
We assess primary science through a range of tools, including observations, questioning, recording and testing. We celebrate current and historical scientific figures to highlight the bountiful careers and professions that a love of science can bring.
Most of all Science at Victoria Road Primary School is fun!
