SCIENCE

 

Science provides a way of seeing, exploring, understanding and explaining the world in which our children live.  Through our teaching of Science we aim to:

 

  • Encourage and develop children’s curiosity and fascination with the natural and physical world;
  • Maintain a good balance between process skills and scientific content, whilst keeping ‘hands-on’ activities at the heart of all we do;
  • Use a variety of teaching and learning styles i.e. investigation, illustration, exploration, basic skills, using models and ICT in order to enhance the children’s learning;

Cover the N.C. Areas of study and wherever possible include visits which raise the children’s awareness and understanding of how Science plays a key role in the world around us.
