Science at Lingham Primary School
At Lingham Primary School we want our curriculum to inspire our learners and foster a real love of learning. Through our Science curriculum we want to inspire pupils' curiosity of the world around them. We believe all pupils should be taught about the role that science plays in positive advancements, as well as scientific knowledge, methods and processes.
With these aims in mind, we have created an innovative, fully emcompassing curriculum that builds upon the core fundamentals of Science (Biology, Physics and Chemistry) as well as being able to successfully work scientifically. Science is taught through clear, progressive units with clear skill and knowledge progression running throughout (see 'Overviews' below for further information). Our chosen units explicitly cover the 2014 National curriculum and further science opportunties are available to our pupils through an annual 'Science Week'.
We are confident that our chosen curriculum provides a high quality science education to enable our pupils gain a coherent knowledge and learn skills to be able to work scientifically (through practical investigation, observation and application skills, enquiry and research). Learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom to maximise the opportuniteies to make links to the ever changing world around us.
