Science at Crawford
The Importance of Science
Scientists at all levels, from children in the classroom to university researchers, use skills of investigation to find out more about the world around them. For the child, the importance of teaching science is because:
1. Scientific knowledge can give a deeper understanding of the world.
2. Scientific attitudes can foster their curiosity and develop enquiring minds.
3. Scientific skills can equip children with strategies for finding out independently and solving problems.
4. Science has, does and will continue to play a major role in our modern society.
A colloborative approach
At Crawford Village Primary School, we value the voices of our students and our staff. Together, we have created our own idea of what science should look like in our school. On the left hand side are the responses from our students, and on the right hand side are the responses from our staff. We live out these ideas in each science lesson, ensuring children are engaged and using their working scientifically skills, whilst inspiring a love of science.
