Science at Fairfield Primary
Science teaches an understanding of natural phenomena. It aims to stimulate a child’s curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do and it teaches methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought. Science changes as human understanding and experience changes.
At Fairfield our children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way science will affect their future on a personal, national and global level. They are encouraged to carry out their own investigations and discover things for themselves.
Science topics are introduced through our Inspiring Learning Curriculum where children are encouraged to find the answers to thought provoking questions. All children also have practical science lessons throughout the year with Mrs Edwards, a Specialist Science Teacher.
Mrs Edwards has been helping Year 5 find out how some materials will dissolve in liquids.
