Science

At Sevenoaks Primary we help children learn their best through observing, questioning and exploring the world around them. They do not have to come up with all the answers (scientists always have more questions than answers) and their experiments don’t have to always lead anywhere (Darwin got his son to play the bassoon at worms, and Isaac Newton spent a lot of time trying to turn lead into gold).

To help them with their investigations (whatever these might be) we teach the methods and reasoning that they need and, just like science in the real world, we encourage them to talk and learn from each other.

So Science is about fun and questions whether we are finding out which fruits and vegetables float or sink; trying to grow a seed upside down; or putting a jacket on a small snowman to see if it really does stop it melting!
