The study of science enables children to develop an understanding of their world through the acquisition of knowledge, skills and values which are relevant to their everyday lives.
Through the teaching of science we aim to:

  • Develop in pupils a positive attitude towards science, so that they become confident in developing scientific skills and methods of working.
  • Encourage an investigative approach to science,
  • Encourage critical thinking and awareness.
  • Enable pupils to explore, acquire and understand skills and knowledge related to Life Processes and Living Things, Materials and their Properties and Physical Processes.
  • Promote safe methods of working and the safe use of apparatus and equipment.
  • Encourage pupils to have an awareness of and respect for their environment.

I can recognise that scientific ideas are based on evidence. In my investigations I can decide on an approach to answer the question and make predictions.

Investigating shadows Investigating how sound travels
