At Mareham, we want to encourage children to be inquisitive and naturally curious, asking probing questions and not being afraid to explore to find the answers. Science at our school fosters curiosity in children about our universe promoting respect for the living and non-living. We strongly believe that science is routed in the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes.  The National Curriculum Science Programme of Study outlines what skills and knowledge children will acquire and develop throughout their Primary years. We passionately believe that not only should children have a sound knowledge and understanding of the concepts covered in the National Curriculum but also that the Working Scientifically skills are built-on and developed throughout their school career so that they can use equipment, conduct experiments, build arguments and explain concepts confidently and continue to ask questions and be curious about their surroundings.  Children attending our school will leave knowing that they possess the skills to be the next Marie Curie, Stephen Hawking or Tim Peak!

Tell me and I will forget,
Show me and I may remember,
Involve me and I will understand.
