‘Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of Science.’
Science National Curriculum.
At Hall Green Infant School we love Science and provide our children with an exciting and practical science curriculum. We follow the National Curriculum in Key Stage 1 and children cover a wide range of topics including, plants, animals (including humans), seasonal changes, materials, and living things and their habitats. We immerse our children in these topics through enquiry based learning and providing the children with opportunities to lead their own practical experiments; we aim for children to be able to lead their own scientific experiments by the end of Year 2. We bring science to life for children and provide numerous opportunities including an annual whole school Science Week, external visits to places of interest in the local area, participation in the Great Science Share and the CREST Science Awards. These opportunities help to inspire our children to pursue careers in scientific fields and to challenge gender stereotypes in STEM careers.
