In September 2018 we were awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark Gilt Award.
Wherever possible we teach Science through creative topic based work. We think Science is really fun and we provide children with first-hand experiences and opportunities to work scientifically in order to develop their scientific understanding.
We foster a hands-on curiosity for exploration of the world which feeds into the children’s skills for enquiry. Children are encouraged to develop their scientific skills through careful observations, investigations, experimenting, measuring, comparing and questioning. We aim to provide children with a range of opportunities where they are encouraged to make predictions, carry out fair tests, use scientific vocabulary, and technology. Through these fantastic experiences children learn the skills needed in order to present their ideas and evidence in appropriate ways and to make links. Children are also supported to use scientific equipment safely and to consider how their actions affect the environment. We nurture and promote a sense of responsibility in all children to care and respect their surroundings and all living things.
