We provide an enriched science curriculum that provides opportunities for first hand learning. The children are exposed to a wide variety of experiences that support their curiosity. We aim to give all our children an understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of science - today and for the future.
We provide stimulating and challenging experiences to help children secure and extend their scientific knowledge and vocabulary. We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life-long learners who will continue to endeavor to explore the world around them.
Pupils are encouraged to develop attitudes of curiosity, originality, co-operation, perseverance, open mindedness, self-criticism, responsibility and independence in thinking through an engaging science curriculum which inspires pupils’ own ideas and questions.
Science in our school is about developing an understanding and making sense of our environment, primarily through first-hand experience, exploration, interaction with scientific phenomena and developing scientific language. It is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live.
