At Springfield, our vision is to provide children with opportunities which enable them to become resilient, critical and curious learners. We want our children to confidently explore scientific concepts and gain a deeper understanding of the world we live in. We intend to maximise the use of our whole-school environment and our local area where possible. We aim to create exciting and stimulating science lessons through an enquiry-based approach which raises children’s natural curiosity and questions the world around them. We intend to provide all children with the scientific terminology, taught through modelled language and explicit activities in each lesson to ensure our children can demonstrate their understanding and be able to ‘talk like a scientist’. All of which will inspire our children to succeed.
What does Science look like at Springfield?
Year 4 have been looking at the components needed to make a circuit. They worked as a team to complete the challenge cards and make a variety of different circuits.
Year 3 have been fossil hunting at Wrens Nest Nature Reserve, they had a great experience finding fossils and sharing all of their recently learnt knowledge with the wardens.
