Science allows children to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
Science is taught in an exciting and engaging way, where pupils develop their ability to work scientifically; predicting what might happen before carrying out experiments, analysing causes and explaining carefully what has happened. It helps children to build on their prior knowledge, and develop new knowledge about the world around them. For example, in KS1 children learn about identifying different animals including mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish and birds. In KS2, children build on this knowledge by building food chains and identifying predators and prey. Where possible, science is linked to our overall topics so that children have the opportunity for cross curricular learning.
