Curriculum - Science

The school has begun work towards achieving the Primary Science Quality Mark in September 2019. Further information about this can be found at http://www.psqm.org.uk/what-is-psqm
 
As part of our work towards this, staff and pupils have contributed towards our Science vision which was launched in January 2020. 
 
Our aim is that children become more independent in finding out about and understanding the world they live in, through their time at Bledlow Ridge School. To do that, they need to gain experience across the range of enquiry types - observation over time, grouping & classifying, noticing patterns, research, comparative and fair testing - to develop their skills in working scientifically and have increasing opportunities to make decisions within their investigating so the children can solve problems, raise further questions and gain a deeper understanding.
 
To share this with the children we have developed our Active Scientists statements:

At home, families can help their children by giving them opportunities to help with cooking, growing plants, spending time outdoors, taking part in sports, making things and visiting different places. Talking about what the children see and notice encourages them to make links between what they do in school and everyday real life.
