Science is also a core subject in the National Curriculum and provides children with opportunities to develop their natural curiosity.

The children will develop the skills of scientific investigation and exploration in a variety of contexts. By the time the children have reached the later years at our school, we hope they will be able to set up and carry out their own scientific investigations involving the posing of questions, designing and carrying out experiments, coping with difficulties, answering the questions posed and presenting their information and findings appropriately.

We encourage our children to appreciate that science is a way of understanding the world we live in.

There are clear end of year expectations for each Year Group based on the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum.
