Mickley Village Primary
& Nursery School




At Mickley Village Primary & Nursery School, we recognise the importance of science in all aspects of life. As a core subject, we give the teaching and learning of science the prominence it requires with science being a driver for some of our Big Questions. Science at Mickley focuses on increasing pupils’ knowledge, vocabulary and understanding of our world, alongside developing their investigative skills. Children are encouraged to develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science investigations which enable them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. As a result, we develop our children’s natural curiosity, encourage respect, appreciation and tolerance for living organisms, the physical environment whilst also providing opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence. Our progressive curriculum allows well pitched teaching and learning of science. Teachers create a positive attitude to science learning within their classrooms and reinforce an expectation that all children are capable of achieving high standards in science. This approach ensures all pupils are equipped with the scientific knowledge, vocabulary and skills needed to understand the uses and implications of science, today, in the past and for the future.
