This subject is an important feature of the learning experience at Holland Moor. Each class undertakes a major scientific theme for each half term e.g. Energy or Electricity, and uses many extensive schemes to support the units of work.
We stress problem solving, testing scientific knowledge and developing evaluation techniques.
We believe that the skills of observation, prediction and inference are all crucial to developing scientific understanding and pupils have many opportunities to develop these.
We use practical investigations so that the children can put their ideas and theories to the test. We also encourage them to increase their scientific knowledge through the use of a large range of scientific books.
