Science at Westlands Primary School aims to teach children to be inquisitive about the world, acquiring skills and knowledge to gain understanding of scientific processes. We believe that children should acquire scientific skills and knowledge through practical learning: using equipment, explaining concepts and conducting experiments confidently and enthusiastically, gaining a lifelong love of science. We aim to give the children a strong and relatable understanding of the uses and implications of science today but also in the future. This allows children to build their knowledge, encouraging them to develop their skills and apply them to all aspects of their learning.
We hope this helps them question the world around them, become ambitious and independent learners, exploring all possible answers to questions they have about the world around them.
