Lacewood Primary School

Always try your best to be your best

Science


We believe the ability to use technology effectively is an essential skill in life. Our aim is to develop learners who are confident and effective users of a variety of technologies. It is vital that all pupils have an entitlement to the Computing curriculum regardless of gender, disability, ethnicity, social class or special educational needs and we will ensure that our provision meets the need of all learners. We recognise that technology has the ability to motivate and enthuse pupils, to enable them to work individually, co-operatively and collaboratively and to develop perseverance and flexibility and creativity.

At Lacewood, science is an essential part of the learning experience. It enables children to appreciate and make sense of the developing world around them. It provides them with opportunities to develop skills, which can be applied across the curriculum. Science is about children developing a sense of investigation and enquiry, extending their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our curriculum includes opportunities for children to develop their knowledge about life processes and living things, materials and their properties, physical processes and to develop skills of working scientifically.
