Science at Our Lady's RC Primary
We all live in an age of fast-moving science and design and technology. At Our Lady’s School, we understand that this area of learning is fundamental to exploring, understanding and influencing the natural and made worlds in which we live. It is our intent to offer a wealth of experiences and ideas that encourage children’s curiosity and creativity, inspiring awe and wonder. We aim to help children find new ways of looking at the world and to engage with changing explanations about how the world works. We teach our pupils to value ideas and to see talking, thinking and imagining as essential elements in developing understanding and new processes. Children tackle problems, forming questions, generating and testing ideas and designs and deciding how to seek solutions. They gather and make sense of evidence, test out hypotheses and evaluate processes and outcomes. Children at Our Lady’s School should be inspired to become the scientists, engineers, designers and innovators of the future by learning about real-life scientists.
