Our Science Vision Statement
At Hurst Drive Primary School, our vision is to provide a science curriculum which enables pupils to confidently explore and discover the world around them, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. We would like our pupils to be passionate about science and to keep studying science beyond school.
Through fun, practical lessons, child-led exploration, working scientifically and learning outdoors we aim to inspire and excite our children and nurture their curiosity to encourage them to ask questions and develop the skills they need to answer those questions. Our pupils will learn about inspiring scientists from diverse backgrounds, careers that link to science and link their learning to their own lives.
We believe it is vital to promote and develop transferrable skills such as observation, communication and team work to evolve the whole child as a lifelong learner. Our objective is to provide lessons which consolidate prior knowledge, investigate problems, and encourage deeper understanding through different enquiry types that are rooted in scientific vocabulary.
