Science

Physicians take an oath that commits them to ‘first do no harm’; the best science teachers, set out to ‘first develop and maintain curiosity’ in their pupils. Without curiosity and wonder children lose their natural inclination to observe the world, ask questions of it and investigate to find answers. Like this, primary science should be child-led,  enquiry based and saturated with curiosity and wonder for both teachers and pupils.

At Tubbenden pupils learn science through the structure of the new National Curriculum and through cross curricular links with other subjects wherever possible. Science is divided into two areas: the three bodies of knowledge, which are biology, chemistry and physics, and then ‘working scientifically,’ which focuses on scientific skills. As far as possible we endeavour to cover this curriculum through child-led science investigations providing a rich and interesting experience for our pupils.
