Science at Leigham is designed to create a sense of awe and wonder. It makes children curious about the world around them and makes them want to find out more. It should guide the children in solving problems to do with the physical,natural and human worlds. Science encourages children to be critical, creative and reflective thinkers and encourages them to take risks in order to improve.
To fulfil these aims, children need to acquire both factual knowledge and the skills of scientific enquiry; identifying questions that can be addressed scientifically; planning and carrying out experiments; evaluating data; and recognising the limitations of their own and others' work.
We assess primary science using APP criteria which addresses all of the above areas and also AF2- 'People in science who help us'. This identifies professionals and careers in which science is used.
Most of all Science at Leigham Primary School is fun!!
