At Yealmpton, we understand that Science is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working in order to enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through enquiry and investigation.
A good understanding of scientific enquiry skills, knowledge and conceptual understanding helps support pupils learning across the curriculum. By teaching the children through engaging activities and investigations which excite their natural curiosity, we aim to develop a long-lasting interest in Science. We make good use of the school grounds to enable the children to learn first-hand about the natural world, developing awareness of the need to care for the environment.
Science at Yealmpton is enhanced by outdoor learning and by visitors such as the Explorerdome, Energy Edd and the NFU during Science week as well as school visits such as our trips to Lynham Farm, The Eden Project and our local area.
