At Tarvin Primary School, our aim is to inspire our scientists by giving them exciting opportunities to pursue their natural curiosity and to prepare them for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world. We foster concern about our environment and teach our scientists how to actively care for the natural world. Our scientists develop their use of scientific language in order to become effective communicators of scientific ideas. We promote the experience of exploring and investigating scientific phenomena, in a range of contexts, to ensure a continually evolving knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our scientists will be encouraged to ask questions, take risks, experiment, reflect, make and learn from mistakes, in a safe environment, whereby they acquire and apply core skills, which equip them for an ever-changing world. Science is also a collaborative activity where ideas and suggestions are shared and investigated together. Through practical activities and teamwork, children experience and learn about the collaborative nature of science through working together and have mutual respect for one another.
