Science at Gateway Primary School


The main aim of the Science Curriculum in Gateway Primary is to develop a healthy curiosity in children about our universe and to promote respect for the living and non-living. Science teaching in our school is planned to ensure that children are able to acquire key scientific knowledge through practical experiences; using equipment, conducting experiments, building arguments and explaining concepts confidently. Children are encouraged to ask questions and be curious about their surroundings and a love of science is nurtured through a whole school ethos and a varied science curriculum.

Science offers children an opportunity to:

  • To develop problem solving skills where children can apply their knowledge and find out answers for themselves.
  • To engage in challenging tasks using high-quality resources to test conceptual knowledge and skills.
  • Use their existing knowledge to plan pursue their own interests
  • To develop working scientifically skills which are taught systematically through the child's school career.
  • To engage in extra curricular activities, workshop with experts, trips and visits to complement and provide broader provision and the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills.
