Love, Learn, Fly – Do Everything in Love: 1 Corinthians 16:14


The Science curriculum provides opportunities for children to develop their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding across a range of themes, including plants, human and animal biology, materials, the seasons, rocks, light, forces and magnets, states of matter, sound and electricity.


A key aspect of the Science curriculum is the development of children’s skills to ‘work scientifically’ – this aspect is embedded across all of the scientific themes that children will explore. Working scientifically concerns the approaches and skills that children require to carry out a scientific enquiry and to answer relevant scientific questions. During their time, children will develop their skills to observe over time; look for patterns; identify, classify and group; carry out comparative and fair testing (controlled investigations); and research using a variety of sources.
