Science

In building upon your child’s natural curiosity we are principally concerned with developing an inquiring mind capable of approaching problems or investigations in a scientific way. 

We aim to develop careful observational and thinking skills which will allow children to explore the world in a scientific way. Children are presented with many experiences that provide opportunities to question, interpret, predict, hypothesise an to draw conclusions. To support these skills we foster attitudes of open-mindedness, perseverance, flexibility and co-operation to enable scientific exploration to occur.

Lessons are planned following the National Curriculum.

Children in the Foundation Stage learn through structured play eg: using materials such as and, water, clay, scrap, building with bricks and blocks, food, wood and a variety of construction equipment. Similar practical experiences underpin learning throughout KS1.

KS2 children continue to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in Science as they experience the science activities and topics as set out in the scheme of work. Science activities are frequently linked to topic work in both KS1 and KS2.
