‘Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.’ Carl Sagan
At Tilston Parochial CE Primary School we believe that exploring, investigating and understanding science helps us to live our lives to the fullest. We learn to encounter and appreciate the wonders of the natural world, and we learn about ourselves and the responsibility we have to care for the world around us. Caring for our environment through Outdoor Explorer and Global studies are important for us to help tackle issues closest to home and look at how we can help make an impact around the world.
A strong understanding of Science will allow children to understand concepts, recognise the importance of explanations, develop their ability to explain the world around them, predict, analyse and broaden their vocabulary, all while developing a sense of curiosity and excitement about the natural world.
We believe that Science is vital to the world’s future prosperity and that by developing key scientific skills and knowledge alongside a sense of joy, friendship and trust, we will be creating the scientists of the future and bringing the best out of everyone.
