A scientific world is one where observation, deduction and hypothesis are central. Children naturally enter into a world of Science. They experiment freely to find answers and it is the role of Science to fulfil this natural curiosity.
Here at Wood Fold Primary School we aim to encourage and channel these processes into developing scientific skills and concepts. Early experiences should create a positive, enquiring and open-minded attitude to learning. These experiences should not be constrained by the skills, knowledge and understanding of Science.
Science is also methodology, a practical way of finding reliable answers to questions we may ask about the world around us. Science in our school is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, as well as using and applying process skills. They discover ways in which to find the answers to their own questions.
‘The important thing is to never stop questioning.’ Albert Einstein
