Science the Seahouses Way
To cultivate an enthusiasm for lifelong learning through a curriculum which reflects our rural and coastal context, adapting to the needs of our children- locally, nationally and globally.
At Seahouses Primary school, we see Science as a way of making sense of the world. Our aim is to give every child a broad and balanced Science curriculum which enables all children to confidently explore and discover what is around them so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. Our outdoor environment complements our teaching of science and opportunities to learn about the scientific world outside of the classroom are maximised at every relevant instance. A coastal Leader has been identified and fully trained in school. Sharing a greater knowledge of coastal ecosystems including ecology, weather and tides with colleagues and children alike.
We provide an ambitious and sequential science curriculum that encourages and develops scientific enquiry and critical thinking allowing children to reach their full potential, explicitly teaching pupils the concepts and procedures needed to work scientifically. We work to ensure that our pupils know and remember more about the products and practices of science.
Exciting, practical hands on experiences encourage curiosity and questioning and our aim is that such stimulating and challenging experiences will help every child secure and extend their scientific knowledge and vocabulary, as well as promoting a love and eagerness for lifelong learning.
We aim to encourage our pupils to develop a curiosity for the world around them. Moreover, we aim to prepare our pupils for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world.
