Science

Monkshouse Primary School understands the need for all pupils to develop their scientific ability as an essential component of all subjects and as a subject in its own right.  A solid understanding of scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding helps to support pupils work across the curriculum.

At Monkshouse Primary School we believe that scientific knowledge is built up through the experimental testing of ideas.  Science is a practical way for children to find reliable answers to questions which they may ask about the world around them.  Through science in our school we aim to:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of scientific enquiries that help them to answer questions about the world around them.
  • Equip the children with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
  • Work with increasing independence and confidence.

At school we aim to provide the children with practical learning opportunities, where possible, to help them to understand tricky concepts.  Through our cross curricular approach to topic learning, we then try to use and apply our knowledge to solve problems, given a real world context.

We have a strong belief that a strong foundation in science provides the children with the questioning skills to better understand the changing world around them.
