“The most important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.” Sir William Bragg, Nobel Prize Winner in Physics
At St Mary Bourne Primary, we believe that high-quality teaching of Science makes learning memorable, offering pupils the opportunity to access a wealth of knowledge and information and providing them with an understanding of the world. We believe that through the delivery of engaging practical scientific investigations as well as building up a body of key knowledge and concepts we develop children’s understanding and enthusiasm of Scientific learning and discovery.
Teachers create a positive attitude towards Science in classrooms and reinforce expectations that all children are capable of achieving high standards in science. Our whole school approach involves:
At St Mary Bourne Primary, we want our children to be inspired to investigate and learn about established scientific facts and theories, keep up to date with current developments in science and recognise the importance and place of science in their world. We aim to inspire a curiosity for learning where children are encouraged to strive for excellence and preparing them for life to become caring and active citizens in an ever-changing world.
