‘Learning, Caring and Achieving Together’
‘Learning, Caring and Achieving Together’


We believe that science is a creative area of the curriculum that requires children to be flexible thinkers.  To encourage an interest in scientific enquiry we teach science through carefully planned topic based work.

During the Foundation Course, Nursery and Reception children will be given opportunities to solve problems,
predict, experiment and explore in a variety of contexts.  These opportunities continue throughout Key stages 1 & 2.

Scientific enquiry is taught through three areas of study:

  • Life Processes and Living Things
  • Materials and their Properties
  • Physical Processes

Children are encouraged through direct practical experience to plan and test their ideas, observe carefully and ask questions and to think about and interpret their findings.
