Science

We recognise the importance of science in every aspect of daily life. We foster engaged exploration, thoughtful observations and reflective evaluation so that children can develop a full understanding of the knowledge and skills essential to successful learning in science and in their ongoing life.

Science

At Grazeley Primary School we use science to help us to understand the world we live in, and beyond! We are committed to creating life-long learners who will be equipped with the knowledge, skills, resilience and drive to contribute positively to an ever-changing world. Our vision is to create budding, confident scientists, with inquisitive, questioning minds and well developed critical-thinking skills. 

We recognise the importance of science in every aspect of daily life. We foster engaged exploration, thoughtful observations and reflective evaluation so that children can develop a full understanding of the knowledge and skills essential to successful learning in science and in their ongoing life. 

We value science as an intrinsic part to STEM and links between these four subjects are made explicit to the children. We provide opportunities to take part in STEM learning, preparing children to be confident problem solvers and innovators, building skills they can apply to many fields of work in the future.

“Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity” (National Curriculum 2014).

Science Knowledge and Skills Progression

STEM

What is STEM?

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths education. At Grazeley we focus on these areas together not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success, but also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively. 

We aim to make clear and explicit links between the STEM subjects across the curriculum so that pupils at Grazeley understand the real world relevance and uses of what they are learning.
