Bedonwell Junior

" Through excellence, together we shall succeed "

 

 At Bedonwell Junior School we are enthusiastic about our science, ensuring pupils take an active part in their learning. Together, we have developed the following science principles.

Pupils at Bedonwell Junior School will:

  • receive fun and engaging science lessons which challenge all pupils.
  • broaden their scientific view of the world around them, by exploring their ideas through questioning, discussion and testing.
  • demonstrate an understanding of ‘working scientifically’ by identifying the different types of scientific enquiry.
  • secure their knowledge of scientific enquiry by recognising patterns and relationships in their results and making simple conclusions.
  • progress to planning their own investigations, analyse data systematically and use evidence to justify their conclusions.
  • use IT to enhance their own learning of science.
  • develop skills to use scientific vocabulary accurately within their explanations and written work.
  • record their work, neatly in science books, including drawings, diagrams, charts and graphs.
  • express opinions and make decisions on social and environmental issues whilst promoting the Bedonwell ‘golden values’.
  • embrace science challenges within the wider community.
