Children are given opportunities to explore and work scientifically using a variety of apparatus to complement their learning. Written tasks lead children into using and understanding the scientific vocabulary needed in practical sessions.
At Fair Field Junior School we aim to provide an enquiry skills led science curriculum which promotes curiosity and inquisitive brains. The exciting and progressive curriculum ensures the following skills are built on and embedded as the children move through the school: comparative / fair testing; research; observation over time; pattern seeking; identifying, grouping and classifying; problem-solving. Throughout the school, we provide children with opportunities to develop substantive (subject knowledge and conceptual understanding) and disciplinary (working scientifically) knowledge through thought-provoking teaching and learning.
