The important thing in Science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.  (William Lawrence Bragg)

Our Vision for Science

Our fundamental intent in Science is that through its teaching, it will stimulate a child’s curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do. Science teaches methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought. Children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way in which science will affect the future on a personal, national, and global level. 

Wherever possible, we involve the pupils in real scientific activities, for example, investigating a local environmental problem, or carrying out a practical experiment and analysing the results.

Just one of the interesting things Year 4 learned when Mr. Jamieson came into class and talked about his work for the National Grid.

As you can see, we have some great scientists in school.
