Science

     

 

   At Gawber, we have developed a knowledge rich sequential curriculum where knowledge builds incrementally over time.

  Children at Gawber will be able to explain the material world and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena and will also learn how scientific knowledge becomes established through scientific enquiry.

    Our children are able to demonstrate, through talk and other means, their secure understanding of the concepts, ideas and related vocabulary.

 

Our curriculum allows time for consolidation and repetition so that key science concepts are remembered and understood by all. It also allows us to regularly check knowledge and identify gaps and misconceptions so that these can be addressed.

                             

 

    Children are taught the 5 areas of enquiry and how to develop their own scientific questions. These skills are taught explicitly and also embedded within the teaching of Biology, Chemistry and Physics content throughout the school. We are aware that practical work is a fundamental part of learning science.

 

    Children will learn about how Science has helped in past and about the continued importance of science in solving global challenges. Science education provides foundation for a range of diverse and valuable careers in which Gawber students will become aware of so they know where Science can take them in the future.

 

Children at Gawber have many encounters to develop their sense of wonder and curiosity in relation to Science. This can be seen through class STEM activities, whole school science days, assemblies led by our science ambassadors, extra-curricular Science and STEM clubs.

Children at Gawber are excited and eager to explore the ‘magic’ of science!​​​​​​​

Our Key Curriculum Aims

Young Science Ambassadors

                                              

   Young Science Ambassadors is an outstanding national scheme that allows pupils to take the lead in championing and raising the profile of science across the school.

   At their training this year, our 4 Young Science Ambassadors were equipped with bags of confidence, heaps of science activities and a big box of accessible equipment.

   The children experienced a range of hands-on practical activities and learnt the science behind them.

    They received a set of lab coats and a big box of kit to help them perform a range of science based roles at school.

   So far, the Science Ambassadors have carried out a whole school assembly, helped plan a Science Day and are helping lead a Science Club for younger children.
