Earlsfield Primary School

Science

At Earlsfield we provide a balanced science curriculum that stimulates enthusiasm and curiosity and develops knowledge and understanding of important scientific ideas that our children can relate to every day experiences.

Children are encouraged to carry out investigations, observe and describe objects and events, make sense of their observations, test their hypotheses and explain results through practical activities, using the correct vocabulary.

Where possible children work in small groups to carry out investigations, learning how to persevere, share ideas and give presentations fostering a scientific approach to learning. This will help our children gain broad general knowledge, curiosity, scientific understanding, independence and the impetus to be able to continue learning throughout life.
