– Albert Einstein
At Biddick Primary School we challenge our scientists to become independent thinkers, who are able to confidently make observations and verbalise their conclusions. As one of our core subjects, we promote and celebrate science across our school, giving it the value it rightly deserves. A subject area that feeds into every aspect of the world around us, the first hand investigative experiences at Biddick Primary School help prepare our children for the ever changing world around them.
At this current point in time, the United Kingdom is facing a shortage of citizens who take up a career in STEM related subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). This is a national crisis. At Biddick Primary School we are tackling this crisis head on, deconstructing the stereotype that all Scientists are males in white lab coats. At the start of the academic year all children, across EYFS, KS1 and KS2 discuss what a Scientist actually looks like. Female, male, young, old, rich, poor, tall and small! The end result encourages children to see themselves and their teachers as scientists. At Biddick Primary School we celebrate the awe and wonder about life and the scale of living things from the smallest micro organism to the largest tree and the interdependence of all living things and materials of the Earth. It concerns the emotional drive to know more and to wonder about the world.
