Children with Microscope

Science at Minsterley

At Minsterley Primary School we believe that learning is a change to long term memory. We intend to create knowledge through spaced repetition and backwards and forwards learning. Our curriculum is built around repeated opportunities to strengthen key concepts. Opportunities are provided to revisit these skills within different scientific contexts and across other areas of the curriculum.

In science, children develop their understanding of scientific knowledge and working scientifically through engaging lessons which include practical investigations and explorations.

We also have a strong working partnership with our local secondary school, Mary Webb School and Science College, to support children’s transition to KS3 through STEAM projects and ‘Junior Scientists’ for children in Year 6.
