Principles of good science teaching and learning


Our vision statement

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