Science at Bridekirk Dovenby School
Our Aim & Intent
At Bridekirk Dovenby we aim to make science practical and fun. We aim to deliver lessons filled with experiments, getting children involved in planning them, identifying variables, executing them with accuracy, reading the results and evaluating them. We believe that children learn best from doing real experiments and learning about science in the real world.
As teachers we are constantly working to ensure that activities and experiments deepen children's understanding of each scientific topic. We always research our lessons thoroughly to make sure we have the most up-to-date subject knowledge to pass on to our Little Scientists.
Science is a Core Subject in our Curriculum here at Bridekirk, and as with the rest of the Core Subjects, we differentiate our learning to ensure that learners of all abilities and those with SENDs can access science and learn wonderful new things in lessons and in our extra curricular activities.
In our Early Years class, our children start to gain the science knowledge that they’ll build on throughout the rest of their time at Bridekirk School, such as developing their skills of observation, prediction, critical thinking and discussion.
