Science is simply the word we use to describe a method of organising our curiosity
- Tim Minchin
Science allows us to develop a set of skills, a curious approach to life and a way of thinking which connects with other areas of the curriculum. By nurturing a curiosity for scientific discovery, we are boosting our ability to think deeply, approach problems from a different angle.
As part of every Science lesson, our children will be encouraged to cultivate their critical thinking skills through approaches based upon the Primary Science Teaching Trust’s Bright Ideas Time initiative.
Science Days - Awe and Wonder
At Clanfield School, we have three whole School Science days every year. These focus on Awe and Wonder in Science and are a way to focus on working scientifically in either Biology, Chemistry or Physics.
