Here at Boxmoor we strive to show each and every child that Science is interactive, exciting and achievable.
This is based on the four main principles:
- Active Science – focusing on interactive lessons which are practical and allow children to have control of their learning/questioning and what/how the Science is being taught in the classroom.
- How Science is relevant to their lives and the world around them.
- To challenge stereotypes so that every child can see themselves reflected in Science. We do this by, not only study famous historical scientists, but also women in Science and scientists from diverse ethnicities in both a historical and modern context.
- How Science is used in STEM based jobs and everyday jobs/lives.
Science in taught through lessons, embedded throughout the curriculum and themed days or weeks, such as Forensic Day and National Insect Week.
