We believe science makes an increasingly important contribution to all aspects of life and therefore is of immense value for our children. All children are naturally curious about their environment and science makes a valuable contribution to their knowledge and understanding of the world. 



Develop knowledge and understanding of important scientific ideas, processes and skills and relate these to everyday experiences.

Be curious about the things they observe, experience and explore relating to the world around them.

Use their experiences to develop understanding of key scientific ideas.

Use models to represent things that they cannot directly experience.

Acquire and refine practical skills necessary to investigate ideas and questions safely.

Develop skills of sorting, classifying, planning, predicting, questioning, inferring, concluding and evaluating through investigative activities.

Make informed decisions based on evidence and their own experiences, and be able to apply scientific knowledge to new situations.

Practise mathematical skills (counting, ordering numbers, measuring, drawing and interpreting graphs and charts) in real contexts.

Develop effective ways of thinking, finding out about and communicating scientific ideas and information.

Think creatively about science and enjoy trying to make sense of phenomena.

Develop their own ideas on how to investigate an idea or phenomena.

Develop language skills through talking about their work and presenting their ideas using writing of different kinds.

Use progressively technical scientific and mathematical vocabulary and draw diagrams and charts to communicate scientific ideas.

Use a range of media and secondary sources to extract scientific information.

Explore values and attitudes through science.

Work with others, listening to their ideas and treating these with respect.

Develop a respect for the environment and living things and show they understand how human activity impacts these things.
