Our vision is to provide our children with a Science curriculum which enables them to explore and discover the world around them, and as a result have a deeper understanding. This involves exciting, practical hands-on experiences that encourage curiosity and inquisitive questioning of the world around them. We aim for these stimulating and challenging experiences to help secure and extend their scientific knowledge and vocabulary. 

Each lesson our pupils will have opportunities to develop their ‘working scientifically’ skills. These skills include collecting datapattern seeking, identifying and classifying. Through completing practical enquiries and exploring ideas children will be given the opportunity to develop a strong core skill set including: predictingexperimenting and evaluating. Within the children’s learning they will be encouraged to work collaboratively and communicate their ideas effectively whilst using a range of scientific language.
