Investigating the world around us is key to our philosophy in delivering the science curriculum. Children are encouraged children to observe, plan, design and make discoveries. They learn to interpret results, draw conclusions and communicate their findings. Our school grounds lend themselves to outdoor learning and links are made to the science curriculum whenever possible.
Science is taught through a rolling programme. This ensures continuity and progression, avoiding repetition in a mixed age class. Links to other topics are made when appropriate.
Each year a focused Science day in the Spring term links to National Science and Engineering week.
