At Martello, we understand the importance of Science; it underpins every aspect of our lives. We believe that children are natural born scientists and want to give every individual the chance to explore elements of science through engaging and memorable learning experiences. We have achieved this by investing in a programme of work called Empiribox, which teaches pupils the three core strands of Science (biology, chemistry and physics) and provides challenging and aspirational practical learning opportunities in every lesson. Pupils are taught the skills of identifying and observing, planning and evaluating, and creating and interpreting data. Scientific vocabulary is explicitly taught and pupils are encouraged to work scientifically whilst developing their passion for the subject through weekly experiments and investigations. Our curriculum allows children to use their questioning skills to enhance their knowledge and understanding to become better scientists.
