Statement of intent:
At Harrietsham Church of England Primary School, we aim to give our children hands on investigative science. This is one of the most powerful ways to learn; it develops curiosity and perseverance, as well as challenging what we already know about the world. We aim to make science as practical as possible, linking it to real life contexts, and giving meaning to our learning.
Our school is well resourced, we believe children should make their own discoveries. We want our science lessons to be open ended and practical in nature - lessons aren’t just limited to the classroom. In addition, we aim to make use of our incredible outdoor facilities including our nature area and endless local countryside. This will allow children to develop the key skills of investigation, problem solving and teamwork; empowering children to question the world around them and become scientific thinkers.
