Science

Intent

At Perrymount we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life, how it has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity.  We believe for the children to become scientists, they not only need knowledge, but also the skills to work scientifically and opportunities for skills and knowledge to be applied through a progressive curriculum.  We want science to stimulate and develop curiosity and questioning, through memorable learning experiences, which provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Through this we encourage children to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena and understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes.

Implementation

Teachers create a positive attitude to science learning within their classroom and reinforce our expectation that all children are capable of achieving high standards. Our whole school approach to the teaching and learning of science involves the following:
