Science has always been celebrated at Baguley Hall Primary school. Through weekly lessons, organised science weeks and days, children have the opportunity to experiment and explore all aspects of science in the world around them. Pupils have developed a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena through enthralling workshops led by visitors. Additionally, we have made use of our edible playground in lessons, and further afield on outdoor trips in order to increase the science capital of all our children. This has been additional to a combination of carefully planned weekly lessons and hands on activities which have further enriched learning.
Topics are informed by the national curriculum and are sensitive to children’s interests, as well as current events in the world today. The Science curriculum at Baguley Hall is carefully planned and structured to ensure that current learning is linked to previous learning and that the school’s approaches are informed by current pedagogy. In line with the national curriculum 2014, the curriculum at Baguley Hall aims to ensure that all pupils:
- 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 science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
- are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
