Science at Brightwell


Science at Brightwell-cum-Sotwell Primary School is taught by our science specialist, Mr. Herlihy.

We follow the 2014 Primary National Curriculum. The curriculum mandates the teaching of a set of knowledge.

It is in this context that scientific skills (listed as "working scientifically") are developed.

For example the asking of questions in Foundation Stage might progress through close observation and experimentation to the children following their own lines of scientific enquiry towards the end of their time at primary school.
