Science

Here you can find out about the Science that happens across our school. 

All year groups follow the Long Term Plan to cover the content of our Science Curriculum. 

At The Beacon CE Primary School we believe that a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

 

 Scientists at Home

Young children learn best through doing. They learn about the world around them by experiencing it through their senses. For this reason it is important that children focus on science activities that they can hear, touch, taste and smell. Below are some websites which have lots of great science experiments for you to try at home.
