Our intent is that Science teaching will help our young children to understand, explain, observe and question the world around them.
We teach carefully sequenced, progressive lessons which focus on accurate vocabulary choices and scientific investigation. It is essential that our children have a wide, rich vocabulary in order to explain what they see in the world around them. We aim to provide a hands-on science curriculum that allows children to question and explore through practical experiences. We give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
