Science at its core is about exploring and understanding how the world around us works. It aims to develop children’s curiosity and to widen their knowledge of their environment. Children are encouraged to develop their inquisitive nature through exploration and experimentation. Through science, pupils will observe and question what they see around them. Through thinking scientifically children will test these ideas and think more critically. Science gives children the opportunity to reflect and make decisions based on evidence. Children will try new things and investigate, learning a wide variety of transferable skills. This will give them a stronger sense of self, and increased awareness of how the world works, and their place in it. Science will incorporate Learning Outside the Classroom and sensory exploration; observation and experimenting will make the experience more meaningful for pupils. Science should also be exciting and engaging. Science is an area where is it ok to be wrong, and to wonder why. Children will have many opportunities to show the school values. They will be encouraged to take risks, and step outside their zone of challenge.
