WHY WE TEACH SCIENCE
Almost all aspects of modern life have some sort of scientific input, from the natural world or man-made sources. Children have a natural curiosity and are fascinated by everything in the world around them. An appreciation and understanding of scientific principles plays an important role in helping them make sense of their surroundings and environment making a valuable contribution to their overall learning.
AIMS OF OUR SCIENCE TEACHING
a) To teach the children practical scientific skills.
b) To teach the children scientific knowledge and principles which they can use to explain observed phenomena and to solve problems.
c) To build on children's natural curiosity, stimulating them to investigate and question.
WHAT DO THE BOYS THINK OF SCIENCE?
“I love Science because in experiments you get to experience what it is like to be a real scientist in the lab.”
“I like Science at Haberdashers' because you find out things that wow you!"
“I love Year 4 Science because we learn things like electricity, life processes and things we had no clue about before! It’s just like the age of discovery.”
“I enjoy Science in Year 5 as I love experiments, the way I get my results and what they are fascinate me. Especially when I’m working with my partner, it makes a big difference. We learn something new every experiment."
“I enjoy Science because the whole world revolves around it. Science is Maths, English, Geography, History and more. Science is all the lessons in one."
