Working Scientifically Skills progression at WPS

There are three aims in the English primary science curriculum, to ensure that all pupils:

* Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics

* Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them

*Are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

In order for children at WPS to operate as successful scientists, they are taught a wide range of essential enquiry skills. These skills build upon earlier opportunities they have had to play, explore, create, engage in active learning, and think critically in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Here is a list of generic science enquiry skills which we help all children try to master:
