Welcome to Science at Gorsemoor
It is our belief, that the purpose of education is to provide young people with the knowledge and skills to prepare children for their diverse working lives, build character, teach knowledge for its own intrinsic value and ignite a love of learning.
Our vision for science is for children to be excited about science, ask questions about how the world works and have the knowledge and skills to find out why things happen. We want children to have the ability to think independently, work scientifically and raise questions about their discoveries. Through exciting, innovative and well-planned lessons, the children will gain the confidence and competence to plan and carry out their own scientific investigations.
Children work collaboratively to explore imaginative and innovative ideas whilst developing their mathematics and literacy skills. We want children to have a passion about science as it is all around us. Children will develop their practical skills through fieldwork and fair testing. Using experiments, children will develop their scientific enquiry by predicting, comparing, measuring and recording.
Children will demonstrate their excellent scientific knowledge and understanding through written and verbal explanations of their scientific findings. We aim to inspire the children of Gorsemoor to become the future generation of scientists.
Always question - Always wonder!
At Gorsemoor we continue to provide all children with a broad and balanced curriculum despite COVID 19 restrictions and in-line with risk assessments. In Science lessons, safety measures are in place to facilitate the sanitisation of key equipment so that children can be encouraged to participate in practical experiments. During lessons and through outdoor learning, a safe environment for the children to record findings and evaluate discoveries is established.
