Our Science curriculum follows suggested units in the National Curriculum. It is designed to be progressive so that children are continually building on skills and knowledge learned in previous units or years. Where possible discrete links are made to other subjects and to real life applications. Children are taught how to be a Scientist by undertaking a range of investigations and experiments in which they are able to test hypotheses to answer a question.
Early science is taught through the Understanding the World strand of the Early Years Framework. Learning through play, children in Reception experiment with a whole range of Scientific concepts to explore the world around them and how things work. They enjoy a weekly 'Welly Walk' around the village to observe the local area including plants, trees and minibeasts and the seasons in action
Our Science subject leader is Mrs Elaine Thomas
