Science is a subject area where children are given as much practical “hands on” learning as possible. Through our science teaching we hope to give our children the opportunity to observe and explore the world around them and increase their knowledge and understanding of science in everyday life. Children are taught through cross curricular topics and introduced to life processes, habitats, basic structures and classification of common plants and animals. In addition children explore night and day, forces causing movement, speed change and altered shape.
Children will be encouraged to plan and carry out investigations, to question, to predict, carry out observations and then be able to talk and write about their findings. The children follow carefully planned science topics that provide for progression of skills and knowledge.
