We aim to make our school a place where children can explore the world of science; a place where their excitement and curiosity can be let loose! We aim to teach topics in an interactive, fun and memorable way. Children are encouraged to enquire, think and work scientifically, which is a major part of the curriculum and is at the heart of every science topic. We see practical investigations as the driving force of science teaching and learning.

Science is embedded throughout the curriculum to ensure the children are taught the skills and knowledge they need for the future – to explain what is happening, predict how things will behave and analyse causes. We use pupil-friendly science characters to embed the children’s understanding of the skills that they are implementing and developing.

Specialist science vocabulary is taught within our topics and built upon as children move through the school. The pupils’ own effective questioning is encouraged so that they can communicate ideas about the science they experience in their lives.
