Welcome to the Renhold Primary School Science page!
Our Science Vision
Science and Engineering are rapidly growing and important industries in the modern world. Even if children do not become scientists or engineers they will grow up in a world that requires scientific literacy and critical thinking skills. Science is all around us and helps children to make sense of the world.
At Renhold Primary School we recognise the importance of Science and strive to maintain a high profile for the subject within our school. Our desire to enthuse and inspire children to develop a lifelong love of science is reflected in our curriculum, extra- curricular activities and learning environments.
A scientist observes, questions, creates hypotheses, experiments, records data, and then analyses that data. All children can be scientists by following their own natural curiosity and at Renhold Primary teachers help to facilitate these skills in order for children to flourish.huse and inspire children to develop a lifelong love of science is reflected in our curriculum, extra- curricular activities and learning envirents.
Renhold Primary School aspires to provide excellent opportunities for science so that children can:
Make meaningful links between classroom learning and the real world in order to develop their understanding of Science
Develop scientific literacy and critical thinking skills by designing and carrying out their own investigations
Make excellent progress
Nurture their curiosity by asking ‘big’ questions in turn developing wonderment and a sense of excitement about science
In order for the above principles to be achieved, we will:
Provide frequent, high quality real life experiences related to science
Provide teachers with opportunities to further develop their subject knowledge
Provide opportunities for children to ask their own questions and plan their own investigations, giving them the support they need to be able to develop scientific skills
Provide well maintained, organised and up to date resources, including IT which will support learning
Science at Home
To help support your child's science learning and encourage them to practise their scientific skills at home, why not try one of the home learning investigations below.
Each investigation is fun and easy to do at home and doesn't take much organisation.
We hope you enjoy investigating!
