‘Science is a process for learning about nature in which competing ideas about how the world works are measured against observations.’ – Richard P Feynman

We intend to help our pupils understand the world by equipping them with the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. We will develop key foundational knowledge and concepts, through exploration and investigation of the main scientific disciplines, and encourage pupils to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. Our aim is for our pupils to experience a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena and to have a scientific view of, and respect for, the world around them.
Our children will develop their scientific knowledge of biology, chemistry and physics through seven core threads of: animals, including humans; living things and their habitats; plants; materials; forces, electricity and magnetism; light and sound; and our planet. Intertwined with this and developed through a regular and broad range of science enquiries, our children will develop their understanding of scientific methodology and seven key skills of questioning, classifying, enquiry, observation, presenting data, drawing conclusions, and using evidence.
Our pupils will be equipped with the scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding to better understand the world around them. They will recognise the nature and methods of working scientifically and be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
From inspiring science shows to our Great Lickey Hills Science Festival, we love science at Lickey Hills Primary School and Nursery – and that’s before we even get in and around school where budding scientists throughout the school are supported in learning to work scientifically.
