Children are naturally curious. Science provides opportunities to explore, investigate and ask questions. By using these skills the children are able to have fun and solve some mysteries using their extensive knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
A great emphasis in Science is on the practical work that is carried out, none more so than in Foundation Stage where the children are taught through play and hands-on experience. As the children move into Key Stage 1 they continue to experience a range of exciting practical activities. Science incorporates specific key skills that enable children to successfully carry out an investigation of their own. These skills are taught through careful, progressive planning.
Teaching is enhanced by the extensive range of exciting teaching and learning resources, the surrounding environment and the visit of outside agencies, such as theatre groups. All of these features enable the children to continue their thirst for knowledge through exploiting every opportunity in Science.
