Science at Yavneh Primary

March 2020

At Yavneh Primary School, we develop the pupil’s sense of joy and curiosity about our natural world.  Our ‘scientists of the future’ are taught to plan by: raising questions, forming hypotheses, identifying variables, choosing appropriate equipment and organising efficient methods of enquiry.  They make observations and collect results from experiments. They evaluate in different ways from which they can make scientific conclusions. Finally, the young scientists reflect and evaluate the fairness and effectiveness of their scientific methods.  They are encouraged to gain Science mastery by applying their investigative skills to any new scientific topic and showing they have a good knowledge of the scientific concepts covered.

We aim for the children to develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through biology, chemistry and physics.

Throughout the curriculum, the pupils will develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.

The children will be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

Science Squad
This term, six children from Kitta Gimmel were chosen to be Yavneh Primary’s Science Squaddies! This is a new role this year and involves responsibilities such as helping set up science events, running science competitions, helping lead science assemblies, checking the science resources in school and helping Mrs Levy to promote scientific learning within our school.
