Science at Gilbert Colvin Primary School

At Gilbert Colvin Primary School we believe that every child deserves an education that is both enjoyable and engaging. Science at Gilbert Colvin encompasses this very belief.

Our pupils are provided with high quality, challenging science education, which also incorporates opportunities for outdoor learning, enabling them to experience a sense of excitement and curiosity, as well as helping them to develop their respect and understanding of the world in which they live.

We help our children to develop their understanding of Science by encouraging them to use the scientific enquiry process:

·         Observing and exploring the world around them.

·         Asking questions and making predictions based on their scientific enquiry.

·         Developing their observation and recording skills.

·         Looking for patterns in their findings and consider the accuracy of their results.

·         Explaining their findings using the scientific knowledge they have developed.
