"Working together to be the best that we can be."

Science is an integral part of Lingdale Primary School.  We want children to understand that science is a subject broken into numerous topics.  The curriculum is knowledge and skills rich and provides children with the foundations for understanding the world through the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.

Working scientifically is at the heart of our science curriculum and encourages the children to have inquiring minds.  Children undertake scientific investigations and, as they progress through school, raise their own enquiries to develop their scientific understanding.  They learn about scientists specific to the science topic they are covering and, where appropriate, undertake a deeper study into these scientists.
