Science teaching at Sparsholt C of E Primary School aims to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future. We aim to provide a science curriculum which enables them to confidently explore and discover the world around them, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

We aim to create fun and stimulating science lessons that nurture children’s natural curiosity and their on-going development through a hands-on, enquiry-based curriculum which promotes questioning, challenge, working practically, investigating, evaluating, making choices, working independently and using scientific vocabulary.
