At Sandown Primary School and Nursery, we encourage children to develop their curiosity in the world around them from an early age, providing them with a range of scientific skills to further broaden their knowledge as they progress through the school. Our curriculum is wide and varied and shows progression from nursery through to year 5, promoting positive attitudes to the learning of Science.
We have recently introduced a Science toolkit in each year group, which encourages children to think about the scientific skills they are using during their learning. We believe if the children acquire and develop these skills they will naturally discover the scientific knowledge and make links in the scientific world. We also ensure that strong links are made to Maths and English within our science learning.
The toolkit is split into the following areas; Questioning, Investigating, Recording and Analysing. Don’t forget to ask the children which skills they have been using this week!
