Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. At Sandbrook, science is based on asking questions that stimulate curiosity and are rooted in real life problems that are relevant to pupils. We take a ‘hands on’ approach to studying the sciences, where pupils: hypothesise, test out theories, present data and draw conclusions through engaging and stimulating activities. We want all our pupils to be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts. We teach our children to use enquiry processes, to attempt to discover their answers! The national curriculum for science reflects the importance of spoken language in pupils’ development across the whole curriculum. The quality and variety of language that pupils hear and speak are key factors in developing their scientific vocabulary and articulating scientific concepts clearly and precisely.
