At Chiltern Primary, our mission statement and tagline are "Making Learning Irresistible" and Science is no exception to this. We recognise the vital role that science plays in our everyday lives in helping to develop the world in which we live. We aim to teach science through the delivery of practical, engaging scientific investigations to inspire the children's natural curiosity and develop their curiosity of enquiry. We develop and foster their enthusiasm to question the world in which we live to enable them to create their own hypotheses and develop their own levels of enquiry.
They will experience and investigate scientific concepts, in a range of different ways, to ensure a continually evolving knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
Our children will be encouraged to:
- Ask questions
- Take risks
- Make and learn from mistakes in a safe environment
- Acquire and apply core skills that equip them for an ever-changing world
We achieve this by following and adapting the 'Hampshire Science Learning Journeys' as developed by the Hampshire County Council Inspection and Advisory Service for Education.
