Science

This page is currently in the process of being reviewed; to read information linked to the revised primary curriculum, please download the attachments at the bottom of the page.

Science is a core aspect of the curriculum. Through scientific activities the children acquire and develop the scientific skills, attitudes, knowledge and understanding that they need in order to understand themselves and the world around them.  Right from the beginning children are encouraged to explore, experiment, observe, question and predict outcomes and to develop an enquiring mind.

As a school we prioritise scientific investigation and have linked this to the outdoor environment. To support this learning we have an allocated environmental area in the school grounds. The children gain experience of a wide range of materials, both natural and man made and use many resources to develop their knowledge and understanding.  Studies are enhanced by using the Environmental Area including a pond and school allotment.
