Science is a wonderful subject to develop the key skills of curiosity, perseverance, reflecting and thinking! In our school, we aim for science to be as practical as possible, and as meaningful to everyday life as we can. As such, children enjoy science and the opportunities it brings for group work, investigation and knowledge acquisition; children love learning about how the world 'works'.
Our primary aim in science is for children to be able to question about the world around them - and have strategies available to them in order to answer that question.
Across our school we have developed a common approach to scientific investigation and is progressively built upon until children are fully confident in:
- Posing questions
- Making reasoned predictions
- Developing methods to answer questions
- Fair testing
- Collecting results
- Drawing conclusions
