Science

At Tang Hall Primary School we are proud to hold a Silver Award Primary Science Quality Mark – we provide an enriched Science curriculum on a two year rolling program. To ensure that the teaching and learning of Science across the school is engaging, active, purposeful and fun, as a staff, we developed Tang Hall’s Principles of Science,

  • Science is practical; children are hands on and can talk about what they are doing.
  • Children develop great scientific skills and build on them throughout their time in our school.
  • Children (and teachers) are excited by imaginative teaching and are discovering things by themselves.
  • Science resources are organised, accessible and used effectively throughout school.
  • Science is (where appropriate) child initiated, child led and relates to real life.
