In Science children have the chance to experience of a wide range of practical work, as well as to develop scientific skills and attitudes. Science helps children to understand more about the world around them and encourages them to question aspects that they don’t understand. Children are given an awareness of the role and importance of science in everyday life together with a consideration of the part that science has played in the development of everyday items. Our children are also given the opportunity to consider ways in which living things and the environment need protection.

They are encouraged to observe, to collect and record information and to interpret that information linked to these two main areas.

  1. Scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding.
  2. The nature, processes and methods of science
