Science

 

 

In Science, we want our children to be naturally curious about the world around them. Our curriculum has been developed by staff to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum and to foster a sense of wonder about natural phenomena. We are committed to providing a stimulating, engaging and challenging learning environment.
 

Throughout our school children are encouraged to develop and use a range of working scientifically skills including questioning, researching and observing for ourselves.

Science is taught as part of the STEAM curriculum with teachers planning to make meaningful cross curricular links with science, maths, engineering and art.

Purposeful science enquiry happens when children are motivated to answer a question that matters to them.

Science enquiry is what children do in order to answer scientific questions about the world around them.


With this in mind, the children from Year 1 to 6 are going to participate in the National CREST Awards, further enriching our curriculum.

 

CREST is the British Science Association's scheme for STEM project work that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists and engineers.
