Science

Our Learning as Scientists

Science is taught as a separate lesson but is linked to our project work where appropriate. We encourage our children to be curious about natural phenomena and to be excited by the process of understanding the world around them. Key scientific terminology is introduced each lesson and knowledge will be built upon throughout the school. Children are encouraged to work scientifically and to carry out simple tests and experiments using equipment as well as to gather and record data. Whilst at Greatstone Primary School, children will learn about plants, animals including humans, materials, seasonal change, habitats, rocks, light, forces, states of matter, sound, electricity, earth and space and evolution and inheritance.
