Pudsey Primrose Hill Primary School


Science at Primrose Hill



At Primrose Hill, it is our intention to recognise the importance and excitement of Science in every aspect of daily life. We give the teaching and learning of Science the prominence it requires. 

Our ambitious curriculum will enable learning across all three key areas of Science;

  • Chemistry
  • Biology 
  • Physics


The Scientific area of learning is concerned with increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of our world, and with developing skills associated with Science as a process of enquiry. Enquiry based learning will take place through;

  • Observation over time
  • Spotting patterns
  • Secondary research
  • Grouping and classifying 
  • Simple comparative test


The curriculum design will develop the natural curiosity in children of finding out why things happen in the way they do and encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence. Our Science curriculum challenges and inspires children in a safe environment, through the planned  curriculum and incidental learning opportunities being taken. As a result of this, we strive for all children to become confident, enquiry based learners, who learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way science will affect their future on a persona;, national and global level.
