Our aim for science at Silvertrees Academy is to foster a hands-on curiosity for exploration of the world. We encourage our children to develop their ideas and ways of working that will enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through practical investigation. We develop pupils’ enjoyment and interest in science and build on their enthusiasm, encouraging children to ask questions about what they notice about their world around them. We want our children to work and think scientifically to develop a secure foundation of skills, knowledge and understanding.

Our children are encouraged to be curious and ask questions about what they notice. They are helped to develop their understanding of scientific ideas by using different types of scientific enquiry to answer their own questions, including observing changes over a period of time, noticing patterns, grouping and classifying things and carrying out simple comparative tests. We encourage our children to use scientific language to talk about what they have found out and communicate and record their ideas and findings in a variety of ways.

At Silvertrees we take a head, hand heart approach in all subjects to develop the children's  knowledge, skills and positive attitudes. These are the head, hand, heart aims we want all children to achieve in science by the end of Year 2...
