At Gilded Hollins, our aim is to provide a high quality science education which builds a key foundational knowledge of scientific concepts. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.
Children cover a broad range of science topics specifically linked to the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
We believe that a wide range of enquiries help children develop a broader understanding of the world around them and a sense of wonder at natural phenomena. This in turn makes them more confident, positive and thoughtful learners.
At Gilded Hollins working scientifically underpins all aspects of scientific learning. Children are encouraged from an early age to seek answers to relevant scientific questions through a wide range of types of enquiry. Children are expected to articulate scientific concepts clearly and precisely and teachers routinely share and teach new scientific vocabulary to develop this area.
