Science

Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events 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. This is a spur to critical and creative thought. Through science, pupils understand how major scientific ideas contribute to technological change – impacting on industry, business and medicine and improving quality of life.

Pupils recognise the cultural significance of science and trace its worldwide development. They learn to question and discuss science-based issues that may affect their own lives, the direction of society and the future of the world.

Our aim is to provide all pupils with a solid foundation in Science, equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in the wider world.

Reception-Science-Exploring waterproof materials

The children have been learning about the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. We tested different materials to see which ones were waterproof and if used for a roof would keep the pigs dry. The children then went off to make their own houses and test them themselves.
