Bathampton Primary School

Together on a Learning Adventure


In their search for understanding scientists do many things including observing, checking, recording, thinking, reading, comparing ideas with other scientist, asking questions, testing hypothesis, carrying out investigations and collecting evidence. Science in our primary school reflects this diverse and demanding set of skills in a fun, active and exploratory way.


Our aim is to foster an enthusiasm and respect for science by providing a range of activities that enables children to develop their own investigative skills and knowledge. We ensure that every Science topic studied includes an aspect of investigative work, so that all children have an opportunity to discover new ideas for themselves, and in so doing, begin the process of becoming young scientists.
