Barley Croft Primary School



At Barley Croft we aim for the children to develop an enthusiasm and enjoyment of Science. We want children to be confident learners and ask questions that they don’t know the answer to and have a desire to want to discover things for themselves. We strive to develop their knowledge and understanding of important scientific ideas, processes and skills and encourage them to relate these to their everyday experiences and how they could be useful in their future. Our REAL projects allow children to see that science is part of their everyday world and we aim to teach children different ways of thinking, how to find things out and how to communicate their ideas effectively. We want children to develop a thirst for how things work by providing moments of fascination. We attempt to challenge stereotypes around science and that anyone can be a scientist.
