Science at Hylands

At Hylands Primary School we believe in fostering and developing our pupil’s curiosity and compassion for the world around them. We aim to prepare our pupils for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world. 

The science curriculum is taught through carefully planned half termly topics. The pupils will acquire and develop the key knowledge and scientific vocabulary that has been identified within each topic and across each year group, as well as the application of scientific skills. Each topic includes a WOW experience to capture pupil’s interest and stimulate their inquiring minds.

Our intention is that, through investigative science and direct teaching, pupils will be challenged and encouraged to explore possible answers to scientific based questions. We promote a healthy respect for the natural world to increase pupil’s care and appreciation of it. 

We also ensure that the 'working scientifically' skills are built-on and developed throughout pupil’s time at our school enabling them to apply their knowledge of science when using equipment, conducting experiments, solving problems and will continue to ask questions and show creativity, determination and responsibility.


We aim to:

  • develop pupils’ enjoyment and interest in science.
  • develop an appreciation of its contribution to all aspects of everyday life.
  • build on pupils’ curiosity in, and sense of awe at, the natural world.
  • use a planned range of investigations and practical activities to give pupils a greater understanding of the concepts and knowledge of science.
  • introduce pupils to the language and vocabulary of science.
  • develop pupils’ basic practical skills and their ability to make accurate and appropriate measurements.
  • develop pupils’ use of computing in their science lessons.
  • extend the learning environment for our pupils via environmental areas and the locality.
  • promote a ‘healthy lifestyle’ and a positive growth mindset for our pupils.
