Primary Science Quality mark - gilt award

At Birchwood C of E Primary School our vision for science is to provide a curriculum which offers the children the opportunity to explore the world, so that they have a deeper knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live. We aim to nurture children’s curiosity through fun and engaging experiences that inspire high level questioning.

Science is all around us and is an important part of our daily life. We encourage our children to think scientifically about the world around them in an exciting, yet educational way. We provide the children with endless opportunities to delve into practical investigations, where they will explore new learning, new scientific vocabulary, working collaboratively with their peers and embracing challenges to build on previous learning.

Our children at Birchwood will have a richer knowledge of science through the five enquiry types that embed our science curriculum. Our children will complete lessons with a great understanding of what enquiry type they have worked with during that lesson, strengthening their knowledge and their confidence to work scientifically.

Together as staff and children, we created our vision and principles for the teaching and learning of science here at Birchwood. As you will see, these aims are fundamental to our Science curriculum, ensuring a knowledge rich and cohesive syallbus.
