At Shirehampton Primary School, Science is taught as a discrete subject each week. We aim to build in as many practical activities as possible so that the children can develop their understanding in a 'hands on' (concrete) way.
Through the teaching of science, we encourage children to use rationale explanations, predict how things will happen and analyse causes. By using TAPS, created by the Primary Science Teaching Trust, learning is child led and encourages questioning. We will ensure every child develops a sense of curiosity and excitement, to encourage the next generation of STEM champions.
