Science Overview




We believe all children are entitled to a broad and balanced science education in an ever increasing scientific and technological world. We encourage the children to explore, use scientific vocabulary and develop the key skills for conducting a scientific investigation – predicting, hypothesising, experimenting and recording and measuring results. We encourage the children to make links between science and other areas of the curriculum when deciding how to record and present results.


Pupils learn about :

Plants, Animals, Humans, Rocks,Light, Forces and magnets, Living things and their habitats, States of matter, Sound, Electricity, Properties and changes of materials, Earth and Space, Evolution and inheritance
