We aim to encourage children to explore and investigate their world, to understand key concepts and use scientific methods of investigation. Pupil will be given opportunities to learn through active engagement in order to develop both knowledge, understanding and skills in the areas explored.

Data handling is explored in depth in Science lessons to create tangible evidence of outcomes in investigations and to extend the mathematical skills of the children.

Through activities we encourage certain attitudes such as respect for living organisms and the physical environment and a willingness to tolerate uncertainty and cooperation with others.
