Science at Rudston Primary focuses on scientific enquiry and finding out the answers to questions, including the ones that the children have asked themselves! Children are encouraged to carry out their own investigations and discover things for themselves. Science topics are introduced through our Learning Challenge Curriculum where children are encouraged to find the answers to thought provoking questions. All children have practical science lessons throughout the year with Mrs Edwards a Science Specialist Teacher.

Science Curriculum Intent

At Rudston Primary we are fully committed to providing a science curriculum that allows children to explore and experience the world and phenomena around them.

Through our science curriculum we aim to encourage and develop inquisitive thinkers and learners, with high aspirations. Through science children are able to work as a team, develop and challenge scientific concept and develop their skills through questions and inquisitive thought.

There are opportunities for children to explore scientific theory and challenge their own understanding, whilst developing a love and enjoyment for the subject.

Children leave Rudston Primary School with the ability to question and challenge whilst articulating scientific arguments and theories with confidence.

Careers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics)

Our curriculum intent encourages engagement with Science on a curiosity and exploratory level. With this in mind, as children grow through the school and in their learning, we can discuss potential careers with them. Here are some posters to investigate that look at Where Science Can Take You!
