At The John Harrox Primary School, we understand that children are naturally creative and curious, with an urge to make sense of the world around them. It is therefore our belief that our Science curriculum should nurture these characteristics. We aim to deliver a fun, engaging, practical and high-quality curriculum. We do this by providing pupils with a clear understanding of what it means to be a Biologist, Physicist, and Chemist at work in the world today.
Our Science Curriculum aims to stimulate a child’s natural curiosity to find out why things happen in the way they do. It teaches methods of enquiry to stimulate creative thought and promotes initiative/resourcefulness when planning and conducting investigations.
Children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way science will affect their future on a personal, national and global level.
Science at The John Harrox Primary School is provided in line with the English National Curriculum. Our school aims to teach the Science subject content outlined in the National Curriculum in a progressive way, according to our subject progression maps and subject overviews (see below).
