What is our Philosophy?
At The Winchcombe School we believe Science stimulates and excites children’s curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. Our vision is to create enthusiastic, confident scientists, with questioning minds and well developed critical-thinking skills. We recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life.
What is taught?
We provide children with engaging and practical lessons that build on the children’s prior knowledge and develop their working scientifically skills. Investigation and creativity are embedded through every science lesson with a key focus on the use of scientific vocabulary to communicate learning. Children learn to question and discuss science-based issues that may affect their own lives, the direction of society and the future of the world. They are given the opportunity to measure, investigate, observe, report and conclude and gather and record data in a range of contexts.
How is it taught?
Science is taught every term following the National Curriculum programme of study for each year group.
