Our Aims

In science, we aim to inspire our children by giving them the opportunities to pursue their natural curiosity, promoting the experience of exploring and investigating scientific phenomena, in a range of contexts, to ensure a continually developing knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our children will be encouraged to ask questions, experiment, reflect, make and learn from mistakes, in a safe environment whereby they acquire and apply core skills which equip them for an ever-changing world.

We feel that science inspires children, encouraging them to be inquisitive about the world, nurtures their innate curiosity and enables them to develop a range of skills that are useful across their learning.

Through our lessons, celebrating Space Week and Science week, we are inspiring our pupils and developing their understanding of scientific enquiry and knowledge through investigations, questioning to deepen children’s understanding and by unpicking any misconceptions. Ensuring that from reception to year six they are understanding the world around them and how science links to the wider world.
