Science is best taught through practical, purposeful sessions and investigation.

  • Pupils should be encouraged to think both scientifically and creatively.
  • We want all pupils to develop enquiring minds by asking and answering questions.
  • Curiosity, wonder, humour and even disgust are emotions that build engagement in science
  • Science should take advantage of the many opportunities the outdoor environment offers to learn  science in context
  • The teaching of science should be rigorous and ensure that pupils of all abilities make progress and will have a focus on pupils developing technical vocabularyPlease refer to the  overview below  for what pupils will be learning in Science at Hope School.
