Our science curriculum aims to make children curious, to ask the how, the why, the what if, the where and the when.  We want our children to notice, ask and answer questions about the world around them.


We aim to develop in the children the skills needed to be “scientific” and the knowledge needed to help them grow as scientists. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be astronauts, forensic scientists, toxicologists or microbiologists.


In Science, children will develop their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through a range of learning opportunities. To answer scientific questions about the world around them, children utilise a range of scientific inquiry skills:


  • Research using secondary sources.
  • Comparative and fair testing.
  • Observing over time.
  • Pattern seeking.
  • Identifying, classifying and grouping.

Collecting, analysing and presenting data will be key skills that are taught across the school, as well as how to use technical terminology accurately and precisely, building up an extended scientific vocabulary.
