Our Vision for Science at Springfield




Our aim for Science at Springfield is to encourage curiosity in children, inspiring them to be inquisitive about the world around them and enabling them to develop a range of scientific skills that are useful across their learning.

By the end of their primary education, our pupils should be equipped to make informed decisions about the scientific opportunities around them. Our science curriculum within Cornerstones offers a broad range of experiences designed to provide pupils with a progression of scientific understanding, skills and knowledge. We believe that Science should help to develop the way children understand the world through interesting, exciting and motivating experiences. Hands-on practical science is an important part to play when encouraging their natural curiosity and helping to build their confidence. Science is a powerful tool as it also improves both their English and Maths skills as well as helping them develop in many other areas too.

The following investigate skills form an integral part of every child’s education:

  • Questioning
  • Research and Planning
  • Predicting
  • Observing and Measuring
  • Experimenting
  • Analysing
  • Explaining and Evaluating
