At Wallsend Jubilee Primary School, we want every child to be happy and enthusiastic learners of Science, and to be eager to achieve their very best in order to fulfil their talents. We understand the need for all pupils to develop their Scientific ability through STEM, as an essential component of all subjects and as a subject in its own right. A high-quality science education not only helps to support pupils work across the curriculum, but also provides the foundations for understanding the world.
As such, at Wallsend Jubilee Primary School, we want to inspire pupil curiosity in pupils about the world around them, encouraging them to ask questions and supporting them to find answers out for themselves. We aim to ensure that all pupils gain knowledge about the methods, processes and uses of science and of the physical, chemical and biological elements of the world around them; outdoor learning plays an integral role in this. Our curriculum has been sequenced to enable pupils to gradually widen their sense of understanding of the world them, building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, with careful support and scaffolding at each key phase to enable pupils to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
