"The constant quest for knowledge, learning and adventure..."
Science provides the foundation for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. All pupils at Sutton Valence Primary School, are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of Science.
The Cornerstones curriculum provides the basis of our Science planning and class teachers use this to plan their Science investigations. Themes such as Moon Zoom, The Scented Garden, Scrumdiddlyumptious, Burps, Bottoms and Bile, Scream Machine and Blood Heart encourage pupils to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. Whilst exploring these different themes pupils develop their skill to work scientifically which encourages them to understand how Science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes.
