Science at Beechwood

Our aim is for the children at Beechwood to have a broad and varied science curriculum that promotes enthusiasm and curiosity as well as developing the fundamental scientific skills. We have developed as a school, with both teachers and children, deciding on the core principles of Science and this underpins all of our Science teaching and learning.

E - Engagement

Science begins in the foundation phase, where the children develop their understanding of Science through 'Understanding the World'. Children find out and explore the world around them and begin to ask questions. Through the school, science is progressively taught and more complex scientific ideas are introduced and explored. Children are encouraged to ask questions about their learning and develop their scientific skills and knowledge. 

We have had lots of exciting and enriching events that further develop and enhance the science curriculum. Look out for some photos and details from some of these events!

Science Quality Mark

In September 2018 we were awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark in recognition of the commitment to science teaching and learning at Beechwood Primary School. This is a fantastic achievement and we are very proud of the hard work from the teachers and pupils alike that has led to the development of Science within the school.
