Science – Physics, Biology and Chemistry

Science is at the core of understanding the world’s past, present and future and our place within it. To show children the world through the lens of science is to equip our children with skills needed to live and be a part of an ever-changing planet. At Poppleton Ousebank Primary School, we recognise the importance of experiencing the joys of Science and understanding its application in every aspect of daily life. As a school keen to foster curiosity about their world, we focus on the scientific concepts as well as the practical aspects of science, promoting discussion and dialogue, encouraging children to ask questions and explain. We encourage pupils to use a range of methods to communicate their scientific findings and present it in a systematic, scientific manner, including annotated diagrams, graphs, concept maps and using ICT. Throughout, we endeavour to ensure that the Science curriculum our children experience is exciting and innovative as well as building core skills and knowledge.
