Science at Irk Valley Community School


Science is all around us! At Irk Valley, we believe working scientifically in all science lessons is one of the most powerful ways a child can develop curiosity of the world in which they live. Through our science lessons, we aim to provide children with the knowledge and understanding that they need in order to develop and challenge their own minds. Here at Irk Valley, we aim to make science as practical as possible, linking it to real life contexts so that it gives children a purpose and meaning to their learning. 


Our Science lessons are open ended and practical in nature, allowing children to use a wide range of resources to lead the learning and make their own discoveries. Through science lessons, children develop the key skills of investigation, problem solving and team work and this empowers children to question the world around them and become scientific thinkers.
