Our children have the right to be taught key knowledge and skills across the Science curriculum in order to help them to develop an understanding of the world around them. We are committed to providing a creative and engaging curriculum through exciting learning opportunities to all of our children. In EYFS, children explore scientific concepts under the heading of Understanding of the World and teaching and learning is focused around each child’s first hand experiences. In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 scientific theories and concepts are explored through investigations. Children are taught and encouraged to predict, observe, measure, interpret, conclude and evaluate. We want to channel children’s natural curiosity of the world around them to inspire them to pursue further scientific enquiries. We want to encourage them to ask questions, problem solve and discuss their own theories and ideas.
If you would like any extra information about our Science curriculum or if you have any suggestions please contact Miss Whitehead who is our Science coordinator.
