SCIENCE

 

Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about events and things in the world around them. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge. Because science links direct practical experience with ideas, it can engage learners at many levels. Scientific method is about developing and evaluating explanations through experimental evidence and modelling. Teaching and learning in science reflects our belief that children have a natural sense of awe and wonder in the world around them. We ensure children experience all five scientific enquiries: observation, testing, research, classifying and identifying and pattern seeking by becoming scientists in the classroom.

 

We aim to provide the children with a science knowledge base, and encourage them to ask questions, make predictions and then to test these in order to discover more about the world around them. We endevour to provide children with varied opportunities and allow them to work as scientists. They can explore through hands on activities following their own lines of enquiry and child led investigations. We strive to foster responsible attitudes towards the environment and all living things.
