“The important thing is to never stop questioning” Albert Einstein.
Science teaches an understanding of natural phenomena. It aims to stimulate a child’s curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do. At Smithdown Primary School, our science curriculum reflects the revised National Curriculum and we aim to develop a lively interest in science; encouraging children to ask “Why?” and “How?”. We strive to develop children’s curiosity through child led enquiry; developing a range of skills which will enable them to work scientifically in a range of ways. Through this we hope to encourage a scientific approach to problem solving and an understanding of the world around them.
