Science

Our Science teaching aims to develop our children’s natural curiosity about the world around them and foster care and responsibility towards their environment. Through open-ended explorative activities based around the National Curriculum framework we aim to:

 

·         Develop the skills of observation, questioning, collecting evidence, predicting, recording and concluding

 

·         Encourage the children to be creative by giving them the opportunities to investigate their own questions

 

·         Enable the children to develop the skills of co-operation and collaboration through their willingness to share ideas, be open-minded in their approach to a problem and to be able to learn from others

 

·         Teach the children the correct usage of resources so they are aware of personal and group safety

 

·         Help children understand there may not be a ‘right’ answer in Science and to have fun!

 

All children are given the opportunity to participate in Environment Club during school time and there is an after school Forest School Club. The children have also enjoyed visits from the Science Explorer Dome which enhance their understanding of and enthusiasm for Science.
