Our Learning‎ > ‎


The teaching of science provides the foundations for understanding our world.  Science has changed our lives and it is vital that all pupils understand the methods, processes and uses of science.  Through building up a body of key knowledge and concepts, our pupils are encouraged to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about the natural world. They are encouraged to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

At Dore Primary we teach science through our curriculum drivers (outdoor learning, TASC and Philosophy for Children) to promote a hands-on experience and promote depth of thought and discussion.  We also aim to give the children as many opportunities as possible to meet and work with adults from the scientific community.
