It is our intent at Petham Primary School to ensure we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. This will be reflected in the cross curricular teaching and learning of science at Petham. We intend to prepare our children to become citizens of the world, encouraging children’s natural curiosity and developing their questioning skills. We intend to develop science enquiry skills, knowledge and understanding, as well as an awareness of environmental and scientific issues affecting our world.
It is our aim to:
Teach science at least once a week.
Develop a language rich environment for science in the classrooms.
Focus on science enquiry skills at least once a topic (including practical investigations when appropriate).
Expose children to science in the news (when age appropriate)
Cover a broad range of topics following the skills and topic progression plans.
