A high quality Science curriculum provides a foundation upon which our understanding of the world is built and the disciplines of biology, physics and chemistry are taught throughout the school. Pupils study materials and their properties, living things, forces, the properties of light, sound and electricity as a part of their learning journeys with a focus on learning through investigation. These hands on practical activities develop children’s core scientific skills of planning experiments, testing ideas fairly, making and recording observations and explaining what they have found out.
