Mrs Moore – Science Subject Leader
We aim to develop an investigative approach to Science. Children make sense of their environment using the school grounds to increase their knowledge, understanding and respect for the natural world. They learn through asking questions and planning ways in which to find answers.
This enables the children’s natural curiosities to develop into real scientific thinking. In this way they can build up a body of knowledge that not only supports their future learning, but also helps them to appreciate the world around them.
Through our thematic curriculum Science has been given a prominent position covering both knowledge and skills in a way that also brings together cross-curricular learning. Children are taught knowledge by working scientifically through the skills of identification and classifying, observation over time, investigation, research and pattern seeking. We strive to provide a rich and varied curriculum to challenge and meet the needs of our children. In our teaching we also ensure children develop their understanding of scientific vocabulary and address misconceptions.
