Science Curriculum information

Subject Vision: “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” Carl Sagan, astronomer

Our vision for Science is to enable children to confidently explore and discover the world around them, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. We realise that young children are naturally curious and passionate about learning; we provide a stimulating science curriculum that nurtures children’s natural curiosity and their on-going intellectual development. Through a hands-on, inquiry-based curriculum, children will experience the joy of having wonderful ideas, exploration and investigation – that is, the joy of finding out.  Our aim is that these stimulating and challenging experiences help children secure and extend their scientific knowledge and vocabulary. We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life-long learners who will explore the world around them.
