In this section of the website, you will find information about our approach to teaching Science at Neville’s Cross.
What does Science look like at Neville’s Cross?
At Neville‘s Cross, it is our intention in Science to develop in all young people a lifelong interest in the sciences. When planning for the science curriculum, we intend for children to have the opportunity, wherever possible, to learn through varied systematic investigations, leading to them being equipped for life to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them. As children progress through the year groups, they build on their skills in working scientifically, as well as on their scientific knowledge, as they develop greater independence in planning and carrying out fair and comparative tests to answer a range of scientific questions. Regular open questioning and use of first hand experiences fosters curiosity in lessons and develops in our children and enquiring mind. Science offers children opportunities to see that all learning begins with ‘I don’t know’ and experience of leading their own practical investigations gives them confidence in problem solving that they can apply across the curriculum.
