We have a carefully structured and well tested series of science study units that run throughout the school, ensuring that all National Curriculum requirements are covered (see later Curriculum Plan). The units all allow scientific knowledge and practical experience to develop together. Our approach emphasises development in skills such as making predictions, devising test, drawing conclusions and recording work accurately.
Science is seen as an excellent opportunity to develop skills in logical thought, discussion and use of vocabulary. Recording of work is seen as an important element and children develop the use of computer databases from top Infants onwards.
