Children will be encouraged to inquire and develop an understanding of nature and the processes and methods of science through as many ‘hands-on’ experiences as possible. There is a strong emphasis on the development of investigation skills during lessons. We aim to help children develop a sense of excitement and curiosity towards science which will encourage them to explain their observations or predict how things might behave.
During each area of study, children will be expected to develop a deep understanding which they can explain using a wide range of technical terminology. Once children have gained a good level of understanding, they will be urged to apply their mathematical knowledge to collect, present and analyse data.
