We want children to be inquisitive and to gain scientific knowledge that will prepare them for the next stage of their education.
Main Principles – At Bramhope
- Teaching enables children to develop an understanding of key scientific knowledge building on their previous knowledge and experiences, and encourages the use of scientific vocabulary.
- Science promotes children's curiosity, asking scientific questions about their learning and investigating the unknown and unexpected.
- Science includes practical investigations, visitors, whole school events and cross curricular links in order to make it real and relevant for the children.
- Our children learn about diversity in science and make links in their learning with scientific careers to broaden their understanding of science in the real world.
