Brinsworth Manor Infant School


At Brinsworth Manor Infants we aim to deliver a high-quality science education which gives our students the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has drastically changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and we hope to teach all of our pupils' essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.


Our aims are in line with those set out in the National Curriculum:

  • Children develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
  • Children develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
  • Children are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future
