Science

The aim of our Science teaching is to provide first hand learning experiences and to develop scientific knowledge of the physical world.

We feel that pupils achieve this by:-

  • learning about the world around them.
  • looking at materials, feeling them, talking about them and asking questions.
  • collecting things and sorting them.
  • trying things out.
  • talking about what they have noticed.
  • making things work.
  • trying to suggest explanations about why things have happened.
  • taking things apart and thinking about how they work.
  • testing out their own ideas or ideas suggested by the teacher.

We aim to increase pupils' knowledge by following a structured scheme of work and develop the skills, concepts and attitudes mentioned above by well-planned, practical experiences that allow opportunities to discuss and reflect on what they have learned.
