Science

Science plays a key part of the curriculum through your child’s entire school career, and a love of Science is created through finding the awe and wonder in our world.  We work hard to develop each child’s scientific knowledge and understanding.  Our children are first introduced to science in the Foundation Stage where it is called Knowledge and Understanding of the World. They will learn to explore, problem solve, observe, predict, think, make decisions and talk about the world around them.

Children explore creatures, people, plants and objects in their natural environments. They observe and manipulate objects and materials to identify differences and similarities. Children also learn to use their senses, feeling dough or listening to sounds in the environment, such as sirens or farm animals.

Children are encouraged to ask questions about why things happen and how things work. Your child will also be asked questions about what they think will happen to help them communicate, plan, investigate, record and evaluate findings. They will also learn to recognise changes that happen to the body when they are active. Children will also learn about the importance of keeping healthy and the things that contribute to this.
