We live in an increasingly scientific and technological age where children need to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to prepare them for life in the 21st century. We, at Heathfields Primary School believe that the teaching of science develops, in children, an interest and curiosity about the world in which they live and fosters in them a respect for the environment

We believe science encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes. Through the National Curriculum programme of study for science document and our Learning Challenge Curriculum children will acquire and develop these skills throughout their Primary years.

We believe that science promotes communication in a specific and precise language involving mathematical and logical thinking. It allows children to develop ways of finding out for themselves and gives them practice in problem solving. Pupils are encouraged to share roles in groups to carry out enquiries and communicate the needs of these roles.
