Science

  • Children are naturally curious and are encouraged from a very early age to explore and ask questions about the world around them. Science is taught through cross-curricular projects as well as discretely and at least one investigation is carried out per half term.  Children quickly gain confidence in using these skills and find science enjoyable.  Science experiences are drawn from a whole range of subject areas but throughout the school it follows the same pattern of:

    • Investigations
    • Observing and measuring results
    • Collecting information
    • Interpreting results
    • Suggesting why things have happened
    • Discussing conclusions
    • Sharing with others what has occurred
