Science



Our science curriculum provides the foundations for understanding the world through the study of biology, chemistry and physics.  Through our science work we aim to help children develop enquiring, curious minds with a sense of excitement about natural  phenomena.  They are encouraged to ask questions, make predictions and analyse results whilst accumulating knowledge.  Wherever possible, science lessons are practical and children plan and carry out investigations and communicate their ideas in a variety of ways.  Our work is based on resources by Tom Robson (Tredu Education).
