“The Science of today is the technology of tomorrow,” - Edward Teller
At Millbrook Combined School, we strive to empower a generation of curious, enthusiastic and revolutionary thinkers. Our learners will ask questions to develop their critical and logical thinking skills, enabling them to make sense of the ever-changing world around them and to see the bigger picture. Our children will operate as Scientists by working systematically to build on their existing knowledge and develop new skills to solve problems, sparking awe and wonder.
Our science curriculum offers a broad range of experiences designed to provide pupils with a progression of scientific understanding, skills and knowledge. Importance is placed on first-hand experiences with an expectation that teachers will access the wide range of resources available as well as regular use of habitats across the school grounds and local areas.
Understanding of key ideas in science is built on across the key stages and a progression of skills allows pupils to move from early observations and exploration to considered questioning and drawing out of ideas.
