Science Lead: Mrs Evans
Science at Bolton-by-Bowland Primary School
We ensure that the children are active learners and therefore we encourage them to observe, experience, question and make connections to find answers about the world they live in.
We help children to develop their understanding of scientific ideas by using different types of scientific enquiry to answer their own questions, including:
– observing changes over a period of time,
– noticing patterns,
– grouping and classifying things,
– carrying out simple comparative tests,
– finding things out using secondary sources of information.
Children are also encouraged to use scientific language to talk about what they have found out and communicate their ideas to a range of audiences in a variety of ways. We provide first-hand practical experiences, but we also use appropriate secondary sources, such as books, photographs and videos.
