Science is important in the world today and has changed our lives significantly. Children should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave and analyse causes. The child's knowledge, skill, understanding and enjoyment are fostered in line with the National Curriculum 2014 specifications.
By the end of Key Stage 1 the children are expected to know apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programmes of study. (2014)
We are successfully running 'The Mad Science Club' for the second year, after having a whole school session from the organisers. We have recently had a whole school science show on forces and linked in to the curriculum.
The school gardens have herb, vegetable, fruit and flower beds which are used to study growth and insect life. The children also plant bulbs and flowers which they have grown from seed.
