There are two main strands to the teaching of Science in our school.  The first is to ensure that the children are taught the specific scientific knowledge set out in the National Curriculum, and covering topics including forces, materials, electricity and magnetism, light and sound, heating and cooling, and plants and animals.  The second is to encourage a spirit of curiosity about the world around them and to develop the skills of scientific enquiry: to be able to predict what will happen in a practical activity, to conduct a fair test and to record their results accurately, and to describe clearly what they have discovered.


In the process of learning about Science we also try  to teach the children to appreciate the magnificence of the created world and  to develop an appropriate respect for it and an awareness of issues concerning  pollution and the environment.
