Our approach to Science
Context behind curriculum delivery
At Hollymount Primary School, we provide the foundation for the children to understand the world around them through a combination of hands-on, investigative learning opportunities, self-research and working collaboratively with each other and adults. Children are to engage in different types of scientific enquiry: observing over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying and grouping; comparative and fair testing (controlled investigations); and researching using secondary sources. Pupils are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
