Science at Bedgrove Junior School
At Bedgrove Junior School, science is taught once a week with topics changing every half term. We aim to provide children with a high quality science education, which helps them to extend their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding, through well planned and creative teaching of the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. We strive to increase children’s understanding of the nature, process and methods of science through different types of scientific enquiry that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. By the time children leave Bedgrove Junior School we want them to be equipped with the scientific knowledge needed to understand the importance and implications of science today, but also for the future.
Working Scientifically at Bedgrove Junior School
At Bedgrove Junior School we understand the importance of working scientifically as part of the science curriculum. Each classroom has a book dedicated to this where children take the lead in recording scientific questions, vocabulary with definitions, predictions, conclusions, suggestions for improved results in an investigation and plenty of photographs of their work.
Those who show a real interest in Science and are keen to complete the investigations, via the above link, will be rewarded!
