Science at Gordonbrock

We are all Scientists at Gordonbrock Primary School!  Through the teaching of science we encourage a life-long interest in and enjoyment of Science.

There are four main areas of learning in Science, comprising of:

  • scientific enquiry
  • life processes and living things
  • materials and their properties
  • physical processes

To help children think scientifically, we build on their natural curiosity.  They are encouraged to explore and investigate Science through a practical, hands-on approach. Over their time at Gordonbrock, our scientists develop their skills of observing, questions, hypothesising, carrying out investigations, recording and interpreting findings and evaluating the reliability of their approach.

Science Expectations

Throughout the year, your child’s attainment will be judged against the criteria set out in the year group-equivalent Standard and Expectations. This on-going judgement will identify what children have achieved and what they need to do next.
