A Vision for Science

At Bridgewater, we have a vision for Science which closely fits with our schools curriculum drivers.  Science is good when:

  • Science is actively taught through questioning, discovering and investigating the world around them. These experiences will help them to understand more about the world they live in. This should include outdoor learning, visits and visitors.
  • We aim to ensure that such experiences will be relevant to the world of the child but must at the same time satisfy their curiosity and offer a worthwhile challenge.
  • Science should raise the aspirations of children developing their understanding and interest of STEM careers by helping children to make links between Science and the world of work and developing the confidence, skills and enthusiasm.
  • We should all communicate ideas using appropriate scientific language and vocabulary.
