Science at Barugh Green School.
In our school science 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.
Science is also a collaborative activity where ideas and suggestions are shared and investigated together. Through practical activities and team work, children experience and learn how to work together have mutual respect for one another and value social cohesion.
We believe that a broad and balanced science education is the entitlement of all children, regardless of ethnic origin, gender, class, aptitude or disability. Every child should have a curriculum that champions excellence; supporting pupils in achieving to the very best of their abilities. We understand the immense value that a high-quality science education can play in enriching pupils’ lives.
Our aims in teaching science include:
- Preparing our children for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world.
- Fostering concern about, and active care for, our environment.
- Helping our children acquire a growing understanding of scientific ideas, knowledge and skills to understand concepts and phenomena.
- Helping develop and extend our children’s scientific concept of their world.
- Developing our children’s understanding of the international and collaborative nature of science and the impact science has at a global, national and personal level.
