Science at Cookley Sebright Primary School


“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.”

 (Stephen Hawking, 2018)


Science makes an increasing contribution to all aspects of life. Children are naturally fascinated by everything in the world around them and science makes a valuable contribution to their understanding. Through this subject, we aim to stimulate children's curiosity in finding out why things behave in the way that they do. We promote different methods of inquiry and investigation to stimulate their creative thought. It is important that the children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way that science will affect their future on a personal, national and global level. Pupils’ investigative and problem solving activities will be used to deepen their understanding of the key scientific concepts and these will be developed as the children progress throughout their years at Cookley Sebright Primary. The scientific programmes of study will be taught from the National Curriculum (2014), using Switched On Science and Hamilton to support the teaching of this subject.
