"Science, for me, gives a partial explanation for life. In so far as it goes, it is based on fact, experience and experiment." - Rosalind Franklin (Chemist, molecular biologist, and one of the key figures behind unlocking the structure of human DNA)
At Lanercost Church of England Primary School, we endeavour to ensure our Science curriculum stimulates and excites children’s curiosity about phenomena whilst satisfying natural curiosity with unfolding knowledge. We aim for all our children, from Early Years through to Year Six, to enquire, investigate, ask scientific question through the use of high-quality resources, hands-on experiences, visits and visitors and exploration of the outdoor environment. We know that we live in an increasingly scientific and technological age and Science is an area of learning that is fundamental to exploring, understanding and influencing the natural and made worlds in which we live.
