Our Science Vision Statement
Science allows pupils to understand the world around them. It excites pupils' curiosity about natural phenomena, links direct practical experiences with ideas and encourages pupils to be informed and responsible stewards of the ever-changing environments that they are growing up in. Science allows pupils to question and discuss issues that will affect their lives, wider society and future the future of humanity
At Hurst Drive Primary School, science is taught weekly in both KS1 and KS2 using the Snap Science scheme. Pupils work in their classrooms and outdoors to study a range of biology, chemistry and physics units; the learn both the subject knowledge needed to understand these areas of science as well as the skills needed to conduct scientific enquiries. As every lesson centres on a question, pupils gain substantial experience in using high quality resources to solve problems and conduct a range of scientific enquires - including fair tests, observations, identification, classification and research.
Our staff and pupils have worked together to decide what makes ‘Good’ science at Hurst Drive. Please click here to read our ‘Principles of Science’.
