At Pomphlett Primary School, we ensure that the National Curriculum aim that 'all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science' is central to our Science teaching.  Through our provision, pupils will develop scientific knowledge through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. They will also develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.  These types of scientific enquiry will include: observing over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying and grouping; comparative and fair testing (controlled investigations); and researching using secondary sources. Pupils will seek answers to questions through collecting, analysing and presenting data.  We believe this will ensure pupils are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
