At Greenways Primary Academy, we believe that science inspires children. It encourages them to be inquisitive about the world, nurtures their curiosity and enables them to develop a range of skills that are required across their learning. By the end of their primary education, our pupils should be equipped with the scientific knowledge and skills to prepare them for their future learning.
At Greenways, we believe that science is a practical subject, where we learning through exploration. Through a range of practical investigations and through a range of scientific enquiries, we allow our children to explore, learn and develop their subject knowledge. Our pupils are challenged with, “What if?”, “How could you?” and “Why?”; they are encouraged to use scientific vocabulary as they move through a broad range of experiences, which are designed to provide them with a progression of scientific understanding, skills and knowledge. Alongside our teaching and learning, science events across the school year ensure our children are given a range of opportunities to explore and investigate scientific phenomena in a range of contexts to develop their continually evolving knowledge.
These opportunities ensure our children are life-long learners, who have the confidence to question and explore the world around them.
