Science at Fordbridge

 

At Fordbridge, we use the Engaging Science scheme of work as a starting point for our teaching for years 1 through to 6. We teach knowledge, skills and understanding of different elements of science through engaging, well planned lessons and encourage children to develop themselves as scientists who think scientifically. As children move through the school, their confidence and knowledge of how science impacts our lives is built upon progressively. At Fordbridge, we allow children to develop their investigative skills of observing, questioning, fair testing, predicting, measuring, recording, analysing and concluding. We do this by ensuring that our investigations are thoughtfully planned and carefully chosen to ensure that we are developing the children’s scientific enquiry skills. As well as working scientifically, children are encouraged to develop an excitement and curiosity about science in the world around us. We build upon key scientific knowledge and concepts and ensure that the curriculum which we deliver is progressive through the years.

 

At Fordbridge we believe in a ‘hands on’ approach to science and encourage all children to take part in practical science. This enables them to:
• build confidence
• encourages safe use of scientific equipment and resources
• develops co-operation amongst groups
• develops an inquisitive mind
• development of investigative skills
• promotes a genuine love for science
