Principles of Teaching Science in Darnhall Primary School

At Darnhall Primary School, we are dedicated to Science teaching and learning. The Principles of Science have been agreed upon by all members of staff. These are on display in every KS1 and KS2 classroom, and are referred to during Science lessons - take a look ... 

We know that effective Science learning occurs in our school when:


  1. Adults and children are all engaged in the topic and clearly perceive that Science is ‘fun’.

2. Children are motivated and engaged in Science through practical ‘hands-on’ activities.

3. Activities clearly progress thinking and learning.

4. Adults use open ended questions to challenge and lead children’s thinking, as well as encouraging children to volunteer a range of their own questions.

5. Appropriate vocabulary and key information is displayed and used by the children.

6. Resources are well planned, relevant to the theme and work appropriately.
