At Urmston Primary School our aim in Science is to develop the children’s natural curiosity in the world through practical, engaging and real life scenarios.
Urmston Primary’s school values of resilience, responsibility, respect, happiness, kindness and pride, like our motto of ‘Growing Together. Empowered to Be More’, has become engrained into the fabric of school life and into our school curriculum.
Our ‘Being More’ Science Curriculum provides a balance between focused learning - to develop the children’s knowledge and understanding - and investigation and exploration - to enhance their skills in scientific enquiry. Science learning provides pupils with context, memorable learning experiences, gives learning relevance, and ensures that our pupils are engaged, enthused and inspired, in most cases by our diverse range of Biologists, Chemists and Physicists - from Lewis Latimer, to Galileo and Copernicus, to Marie M Daly, to many more! This leads to a lifelong love of science that our children carry with them as they move onto secondary education and beyond.
