Our aim in science is to nurture a curiosity about the world we live in and encourage an enthusiasm and love of the subject. We believe that science should generate excitement and above all, respect for the environment and all living things. We recognise that every child is a ‘scientist’ in society.

We ensure that our programme of study is in line with the new national curriculum and deliver a hands-on approach in order to engage the children and stimulate their learning. We begin to develop the children’s “working scientifically” skills in key stage 1 and progress to completing full investigations in key stage 2.

We have strong links and regularly visit the Science Museum to further enhance children’s experiences. We also annually hold a science day to celebrate science achievements and developments.
