In Science our vision is to give children a Science curriculum which creates a sense of excitement, awe and wonder so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. To achieve this it involves practical hands on experiences that encourage curiosity and questioning. All lessons promote the ethos of working scientifically. Pupils will be actively involved through practical learning, seeking answers to questions; classifying or analysing or collecting data.
Our aim is that these experiences help children secure and extend their scientific knowledge and vocabulary. We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life-long learners who will explore the world around them.
