Powell's School Church of England (VA) Primary School



At Powell’s, we aim to develop children’s natural curiosity and the motivation to find the answer to the question ‘why?’. We encourage children to adopt an investigative and questioning approach to enhance and extend their scientific knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We want children to always be seeking answers and not to just look for the “right” one. We encourage children’s independence to ask questions and draw conclusions based upon their observations. Our goal is to develop resilient learners, with a love for science, who could go on to become the scientists of the future.


Subject leaders have carefully planned a whole school overview and teachers create sequences of lessons to embed knowledge and skills.
