Trewirgie Junior School




Why teach Science? From an early age children’s natural curiosity sparks many questions about the world in which they live. Why is the sky blue? Where do stars come from? Why do volcanoes erupt? Science helps children to explore questions like these and through this, develop an understanding of the world in which they live.


The school’s approach to learning is through exploration and discovery. We know that these both increase creativity and brain plasticity, which then helps children to become open to new ideas and be more creative in their own thinking. (Collins, 2015) This therefore supports the approach we place on investigative Science. 


Maintaining curiosity is an important aspect of science education.  Scientific enquiry is crucial in developing and sustaining curiosity. This curiosity and imagination stimulates questions, predictions and hypotheses; it is then the teacher’s role to enable children to explore ways to investigate and test out their ideas by making observations, gathering data, presenting their findings and then explaining what they have found out scientifically.
