At Carleton Endowed Primary school we increase pupils’ knowledge and understanding of our world, and  with developing skills associated with Science as a process of enquiry.

We intend to achieve this by  fostering a natural curiosity in the children, encourage respect for living things and physical environment  as well as providing opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence.  

Our Intentions:  

  • Help develop and extend our children’s scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding about  their world.  
  • Equip pupils with the skills to live in an increasingly scientific and technological world. 
  • Build on our children’s natural curiosity and developing a scientific approach to problems. 
  • Use practical experiment and explorations to develop the skills of investigation, including:  observing, measuring, predicting, hypothesising, experimenting, communicating, interpreting,  explaining and evaluating.  
  • Use essential scientific enquiry skills to deepen their scientific knowledge.  
  • Develop the use of scientific language and recording techniques.  
  • Actively make links between science and other subjects.
