Science at The Grange Primary School

The Grange Primary School is proud to announce we have achieved PSQM silver award.

Our Philosophy

Science in our school is about developing children`s ideas and ways of working that allow them to make sense of the world around us through investigation, as well as using and applying process skills.

We believe that a broad and balanced science education is the entitlement of all children, regardless of ethnic origin, gender, class, aptitude or disability.

We aim to make teaching and learning in Science fun and exciting!

Our aims in teaching Science include the following:

  • Preparing our children for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world.
  • Fostering concern about, and active care for our environment.
  • Helping develop and extend our children`s scientific concept of their world.

Key Principles of Science

At The Grange Primary School, great science is when:

  • We are investigating
  • When we can relate it to real life
  • When we are engaged in the lesson
  • When we use resources effectively
  • When we are solving problems
  • When we ask questions and make predictions
  • When we are scientists!
