Science is taught as part of our project work at Scholes but we also teach Scientific Enquiry skills to enhance our Science curriculum. We encorporate lots of practical and investigation work into our Science lessons.

Practical science isn't just about fair test investigations even though fair test investigations are an important part of Scientific Enquiry. To ensure children experience a wide range of practical opportunities we immerse them in other ways of finding out about the world around us. These include:

  • Asking and raising questions
  • Exploring / Observing / First hand experiences
  • Sorting / Grouping / Comparing / Classifying
  • Practical Investigations / fair test / pattern seeking survey
  • Solving problems / Science challenges / create, invent, design
  • Modelling to represent real science
  • Research - secondary sources, asking an expert, asking others

We assess children as working toward, being at the expected level or working at greater depth against the National Curriculum.
