At Sutton Green, it is our intention that all children develop scientific curiosity and are inspired to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them. We aim to provide all children with opportunities to undertake a full range of scientific enquiries in order to become skilled scientists. Children will learn scientific concepts and begin to consider how Science has contributed to everyday life. We aim to teach methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought. Children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way science will affect their future on a personal, national, and global level.
High-quality Science lessons are delivered discreetly and children are taught to develop their scientific skills through our interactive and knowledge-rich sessions. The school and classroom environments encourage our pupils to engage, develop, innovate and express themselves through their own unique stage of development and learning. Key scientific language is modelled and taught throughout lessons, enabling our children to be familiar with and use vocabulary accurately. We are committed to providing exciting, hands-on and practical experiences to promote curiosity and a love for enquiry and knowledge. Children are taught to use their enquiry and reasoning skills to be able to tackle problems with confidence and independence, developing their own questions and finding ways to answer them.
As well as ensuring that children acquire the appropriate age-related knowledge linked to the science curriculum, teaching ensures that children are equipped with transferable skills that will support them in their everyday lives and across other subjects. Children will develop a better understanding of our world and our environment and will be able to make informed decisions about how they treat our world. Through the development of these essential transferable skills, we seek to give children high aspirations, which will see them through to further study, work and a successful adult life.
