Science is delivered across the school in a cross-curricular approach. The Science objectives for each year group are covered thoroughly, with class teachers choosing the most appropriate time throughout the year to cover the objectives. As Science is linked into the class’ topic, the children create links between their learning and this ensures that maximum progress is made.
The variety of Science lessons excites pupils, stimulating their curiosity about the world around them. The practical experiences lead to a development in the Science skills of observation, interpretation, hypothesising, questioning, investigating and communicating. Teachers encourage children to develop their enquiring minds, providing regular opportunities to investigate both given questions and their own questions.
