At Hollymount School, it is our intent to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring and developing specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically.  We aim for the children to gain an understanding of scientific processes and an understanding of the uses and implications of science today and for the future.

Our Science curriculum fosters a healthy curiosity about our universe and promotes respect for the living and non-living. It encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes. We encourage our children to become resilient learners and aim to provide an environment where children collaboratively feel confident to make ‘magic mistakes’ and to make steps to ultimately succeed.  We emphasise the importance of language and using scientific vocabulary.  The ‘Working Scientifically’ skills are embedded in each topic the children study and these topics are revisited and developed throughout their time at school.
