Science

The school is well resourced for science work

In science we aim to stimulate children’s enquiry into the world around them. Children are taught the skills of prediction, questioning, observing, measuring, recording of results and drawing conclusions, as well as scientific facts connected to the science topics that we study. Children are encouraged to use scientific vocabulary in their investigations and to explain their thinking.

The school is well resourced for science work, and the use of school grounds is made when appropriate. Science is taught mainly as an individual subject but also through topic work if applicable.

Science is often taught in blocks to maximise the children’s learning and enjoyment of science in school. An annual Science Day is held, where children participate in a number of activities, including a science evening where parents and children are invited to return to school to explore science and investigate together.
