The children at Audenshaw Primary school enjoy science because it stimulates and excites their curiosity about the world around them. They learn, right from day one, about biology (plants, animals and humans); chemistry (changing states, separating mixtures, materials) and about physics (electricity, forces, light & sound, space). However, perhaps more important than all of that, is the development of scientific method throughout the school. By learning how to observe over time, identify and classify, seek patterns, and conduct research and experiments, children learn how to ask and answer scientific questions about the world.


By equipping children with these vital skills, children are better prepared to make a valuable contribution to the ever-changing world that awaits them. Furthermore, the subject has been designed and planned to give children the knowledge and skills that they need for later life such as: questioning, problem solving, freethinking, resilience, confidence and presenting skills.
