A high quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. At Gillibrand Primary School, to ensure that all pupils build up a body of key knowledge and concepts, pupils will be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. We provide a creative approach to the science curriculum - inviting in visitors/specialists and arranging visits that are science based.
We allow our children to build up extended specialist vocabulary and use skills acquired from maths to collect, present and analyse data.
The children are encouraged to be curious and ask questions about what they notice.
