Peterchurch Primary School teaches Science through practical activities and investigations, alongside opportunities for independent research. We want pupils to develop enquiring minds with a love of exploring the world around them. We aim for excellence, alongside excitement and enjoyment. Lessons are taught both in the classroom and outside when relevant to lessons; such as examining plants, exploring local habitats, noticing shadow changes to enhance their learning.
All teachers have excellent subject knowledge and are enthusiastic about teaching Science lessons. Children are given regular opportunities to plan and carry out practical investigations and we provide a range of scientific resources to enable them to do this as independently as possible.
