In Science we provide practical and exciting opportunities for children to investigate the world in which they live. We want to spark their curiosity so that they are keen to ask questions, in order to better understand scientific concepts. Our aim is to make Science fun whilst developing confidence and interest in scientific knowledge, enquiry types and scientific skills.
Our key principles for teaching Science are:
- Children have a positive attitude towards science.
- Children are encouraged and confidently use scientific language in their learning.
- Children are practically trying out their own ideas.
- Children have a range of resources to support learning including ICT.

| Year 3 have enjoyed investigating different questions in order to better understand scientific concepts.
“I wonder where my shadow will be later on in the day?”
“I wonder how fast my parachute will drop?”
”Look how quickly the butter has melted!”
|In year 4 the children have used their understanding of scientific concepts to explain what is happening.
“It was easier to pull the wood on the carpet than the rubber.”“I liked using weights to investigate friction. It was fun to use Newton meters.”
”I never really knew that our teeth were so important. Now I know if you eat the right food and brush properly your teeth will grow healthy and strong”
|Year 5 have been using their scientific knowledge
and learnt vocabulary to write texts to explain
|They have also been planning investigations and
collecting evidence to support or refute their ideas.
|Year 6 have been using their understanding of scientific concepts and knowledge of different texts types to write information texts.
