At Queen’s Park, we know a curious mind makes an excellent scientist.  We have an exciting, hands-on and investigative approach towards Science that stimulates children’s curiosity about the world and their place in it.  

Our aim is that children leave Queen’s Park with a thirst for asking questions about the world around them and the practical skills to explore the answers to them.


At Queen’s Park we: 

  • Ensure children in our school experience a range of enquiry types including: observing over time, identifying and classifying, pattern seeking, fair and comparative testing, exploring and research. 
  • Encourage the development of positive attitudes to science by creating and nurturing a sense of awe and wonder about our world and beyond.
  • Encourage children to ask questions and explore their own lines of enquiry, take risks and view mistakes as a positive opportunity to deepen their understanding. Children will also consider philosophical questions about the importance of ethical issues, for example. disturbing mini-beasts in order to study them.
  • Deliver the Curriculum in ways that are first hand and practical as well as imaginative, purposeful, safe and enjoyable.
  • Ensure that our curriculum is inclusive and allows for all children to show their strengths.
  • Equip children with the vocabulary and scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science today and in the future.
  • Make strong, purposeful links between science and other subjects.
  • Ensure that all children feel seen and represented by learning about Scientists from a diverse range of backgrounds that reflects our school community.
