Through science, children are taught to be curious about the world around them. Our curriculum is stimulating, engaging and challenging and ensures full coverage of the National Curriculum. It fosters a sense of wonder about natural phenomena. Children develop and use a range of scientific skills including questioning, fair-testing and drawing conclusions. Scientific vocabulary is taught and built upon as topics are revisited progressively in different year groups and across key stages.
Science is taught by Mr Salter in Years 2 to 6. This enables science to be given a high priority in the curriculum and allows time for regular practical investigation. Numeracy and Literacy skills are enhanced through science teaching. In order that pupils achieve their full potential, they receive support and challenge.
