Through our science curriculum pupils develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science. Through different types of scientific enquiry, they answer questions about the world around them and develop and deepen their ever growing curiosity.
Children experience a variety of practical activities using an increasing amount of equipment and recording methods to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding. They learn to use a variety of approaches to investigate and record their findings using the five types of scientific enquiry:
Observing over time
Identifying, classifying and grouping
Comparative and fair testing
Research using secondary sources
