Science

At Huntington Community Primary School, we aim to deliver a rich and engaging curriculum which provides children with the foundations for understanding the world through the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.   

Our hands-on approach to teaching and learning encourages children to have a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring the specific skills and knowledge to support their scientific thinking. As a result, children will gain an understanding of scientific processes and of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.

 

'The science of today is the technology of the future.'

 - Edward Teller 

 

Our curriculum ensures that scientific enquiry skills are embedded within each topic. Topics and disciplines are revisited and developed from EYFS through to Year 6 allowing children to build upon their prior knowledge. All pupils are encouraged to develop and use a range of skills including observations, planning and investigating. Children are also encouraged to question the world around them and become independent learners.

 

'The important thing is to never stop questioning.'

- Albert Einstein
