We want to foster our children’s natural curiosity about the world around us and how it works. We believe that the scientific understanding and enquiry of our young scientists will play a crucial role in addressing our shared global issues such as climate change. We want our children to experience the wonder in learning about our universe and for them to be awakened to the potential of future discovery.

Science learning is built around a well-sequenced and knowledge-rich curriculum that ensures prior knowledge is built upon as children move through the key stages. We use the Kapow scheme of work, which offers highly engaging lessons, designed by specialists, so that knowledge and skills are well sequenced and developed across the school. 

Alongside delivering a knowledge-rich curriculum we also value and look at the practical skills of scientific enquiry. We encourage the children to ask questions and challenge their findings during scientific experiments. Their subsequent collaborative use of key scientific skills: observation, fair testing, research, grouping and classifying and pattern seeking to make their own discoveries and explanations. Our budding scientists seek to problem solve, create and are always keen to explain their thinking using subject specific vocabulary. We wish to foster an understanding of science and discovery as being for everybody regardless of ability, race, gender or background.
