SCIENCE at Barnard Grove


Science is an important core subject in our school as it provides the foundations for understanding the world. Through building key knowledge, concepts and skills, pupils should be encouraged to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to explain what is occurring through conceptual models and practical activities that progressively build a deep understanding of the science curriculum and ‘Working Scientifically’.


At Barnard Grove Primary School our aim is to enthuse, develop and challenge pupils through an engaging and progressively structured science curriculum and teaching approaches where we follow our school science principles that where created with the staff and pupils.
