“Science is about exploring, and the only way to uncover the
secrets of the universe is to go and look.”
“The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Curiosity has its own reason for existence.
It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.”
Children enjoy weekly Science lessons. Much of the knowledge content of the National Curriculum is taught through ‘Working Scientifically’ which specifies the understanding of nature, processes and methods of science for each year group. These types of enquiry include: observation over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying & grouping; comparative & fair testing and researching using secondary sources. Through these investigations, children seek to answer questions through collecting, analysing and presenting data. We are lucky to have extensive grounds which we frequently use for Science lessons and Forest School.
Children’s learning is enhanced by visits from scientists and we aim to inspire and excite with our special events such as the annual Science Fair, annual STEM week and Inter-School Quizzes.
