Science provides pupils with the understanding that they need to care for themselves and their environment. It deepens and widens the pupils’ outlook on life by sparking their imagination and allowing for the awe and wonder aspect of the subject.
At Towngate Academy our pupils learn the key skills of being a scientist through planning, carrying out and evaluating investigations as well as learning about important science concepts and knowledge. We teach the age appropriate skills in each year group - see our progression in skills document below.
The children take part in activities such cooking and growing. The skills that are taught to the children are essential and build firm foundations for their futures.
