Science lessons provide a great opportunity for the children to find out more about the world around them and how it works.
Their knowledge and understanding will be developed in three main areas:
- living things
- physical processes
They will be encouraged to observe, to question and to discover through experiment and investigation – designing fair tests and recording/interpreting results with increasing independence.
Science lessons will also enhance skills developed in other curriculum areas – particularly Literacy and Numeracy. Primarily science is a ‘hands on’, practical subject and your children will learn by ‘doing’.
