Our Intent 

At Barrow URC Primary School, our aim is to give children a Science curriculum that enables them to confidently explore and discover the world around them so that they have a deeper understanding of the world in which we live. We aim to create fun and stimulating science lessons that nurture children’s curiosity whilst acquiring specific knowledge and developing key skills. Scientific enquiry skills are embedded in each topic the children study. Pupils are encouraged to work independently and collaboratively, to pose questions, plan and carry out investigations, predict, observe, analyse and explain. Specialist vocabulary is taught and the children are encouraged to explain their understanding of different scientific concepts in an age appropriate way.

British Science Week 13th March

The week began with a whole school assembly around this year's theme of 'Connections.'  The children then investigated, explored and experimented in class using their scientific skills in a range of activities.  The highlight of the week was the Science Fair where children showcased their science projects in a variety of ways.  There was a real buzz for learning as children talked about their projects enthusiastically and confidently with others.  We certainly believe we have some future scientists in the making here at Barrow.
