Science is taught each term so that we cover the whole science National Curriculum. Each year group has science focus areas, areas that will be covered in depth. First hand practical experience is paramount as is the teaching of scientific key skills. Children are encouraged to be independent and collaborative scientific investigators by their involvement in exciting practical investigations. Children are encouraged to be creative and make learning to be more relevant to them by designing their own experiments.
In Science pupils observe, explore and ask questions about living things, materials and physical processes. They evaluate evidence and consider whether tests or comparisons are fair. They use reference materials to find out more about scientific ideas. They share their ideas and communicate them using scientific language, drawings, charts and tables.
