Science aims to stimulate children's enquiry into the world around them. Children are taught the skills of prediction, questioning, observation, measuring, recording of results and drawing conclusions, as well as scientific facts connected to the science topics that we study. Children are encouraged to use scientific vocabulary in their investigations and to explain their thinking. The school is well resourced for science work, and we are working to develop the school grounds to become an important part of our learning in Science.
This year, we are working towards obtaining the Primary Science Quality Mark, which recognises that our school values the importance of science and delivers the subject in a challenging, stimulating and relevant way.

We believe that it is very important to recognise parents as their child’s first teacher.
Science is a subject that relates to our understanding of the processes of the world around us. As such, it is one of the most relevant subjects that children can engage with at home. We would like to actively encourage children to continue their investigations at home, and even try some new ones.
