Science

Intent

At Brady Primary we believe that acquiring scientific skills and knowledge is the key to children’s understanding of the natural and technological world around them. Children’s natural curiosity will be utilised in developing the necessary skills of inquiry and questioning which are needed to become effective scientists and to begin to develop a responsible attitude towards the environment.
 
  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • are equipped with the scientific skills required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
  • We understand that it is important for lessons to have a skills-based focus, built on a foundation of supporting knowledge.


Implementation

We involve problem solving opportunities that allow children to find out for themselves. Children are encouraged to ask their own questions and be given opportunities to use their scientific skills and research to discover the answers.
We build upon the learning and skill development of the previous years. As the children’s knowledge and understanding increases, and they become more proficient in selecting, using scientific equipment, collating and interpreting results, they become increasingly confident in their growing ability to come to conclusions based on real evidence.
Working Scientifically skills are embedded into lessons to ensure these skills are being developed throughout the children’s school career and new vocabulary and challenging concepts are introduced through direct teaching. This is developed through the years, in-keeping with the topics.
 


Impact

We aim for Science at Brady to result in a fun, engaging, high-quality science education, that provides children with the foundations and knowledge for understanding the world. Children learn the possibilities for careers in science, as a result of Science Days, ensuring that children have an understanding and exposure to a range of different scientists from various backgrounds, all children feel they are scientists and capable of achieving. We aim to ensure every child enjoys science which results in motivated learners with sound scientific understanding.
