Working scientifically

At Gillshill Primary School Science is taught for two hours every week (or equivalent across the term). Usually Science lessons are incorporated into the year group topic however some Science is delivered as a stand-alone lesson. We may also link science to current events.

We value the importance of working scientifically and supporting children to develop their skills of investigating. We ensure science lessons are hands allowing children to learn through exploring, investigation, questioning and testing. This is reflected in our Science vision which we share with children.  

We want develop a love and fascination of Science therefore we aim to provide fun, exciting opportunities and experiences in Science. We do this by planning visits and inviting visitors into school to bring Science to life and make learning memorable. 

In each classroom learning is celebrated and shares through classroom displays. We also have a whole school Science display celebrating Science home learning.

Each term we have a Science home learning challenge to encourage our families to engage in Science learning outside the classroom and help children to see that science is all around them.
