About our school

Glasidale Primary (4)Science

At Castleton, Glaisdale and Lealholm schools we deliver an exciting and progressive Science curriculum that not only informs, but also nurtures our pupils’ natural curiosity and allows them to ask questions, as well as develop the skills they need to answer those questions for themselves.

Children are guided and encouraged in all of the following aspects:- 

  • Asking questions
  • Making predictions
  • Setting up tests
  • Observing and measuring
  • Recording data
  • Interpreting and communication results
  • Evaluating

Science lessons will then progress to creating opportunities for more child-led enquiry, using the five following types of enquiry:

  1. Comparative and fair testing
  2. Observing over time
  3. Identifying, classifying and grouping
  4. Research using secondary sources
  5. Pattern seeking

As children progress through the school, they move from simply being aware of which type of enquiry they are using, to choosing the most appropriate type of enquiry for an investigation. The use of logos to help with enquiry identification is being introduced this half term.
