At Harrowgate Hill Primary School we want our children to be inquisitive about the world around them and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena and we achieve this through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Through building upon key knowledge and concepts, children are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science and are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes.
Whether children are in KS1 or KS2, here at Harrowgate Hill Primary School, we ensure children are provided with the opportunity to take part in science on a weekly basis, with lessons lasting around two hours typically. Within these lessons, children are encouraged to think and work scientifically through a variety of practical enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
However, it doesn't just stop there... For those budding scientists out there, we also offer an after-school club to both KS1 and KS2 children; an opportunity for them to conduct enquiries which allows them to look closely at the natural and humanly-constructed world around them.
