We follow the National Curriculum objectives for Science and plan exciting and imaginative activities in order to capture children’s imagination. Much of the work is of a practical nature and will involve the children observing, hypothesising and predicting results within topics such as Light, Sound, Electricity, Forces, Plants and Living Things. Whenever possible, science knowledge and understanding is embedded further through visits to museums, science fairs and specific topic-related trips. We are also very fortunate to have our own fantastic Forest School area in which children can develop and explore new skills in a safe but inspiring environment. Cross curricular links are consistently made to ensure children understand the relevance of science to their lives. All of the above enables the children to question and discuss science-based issues that may affect them locally or impact the future of our planet as a whole.
