Understand the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.

Are interested and ask questions about what they notice using scientific language to talk about what they have found out and record their findings in a variety of different ways.
Are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
How do we promote learning in Science?
Science is taught in all year groups. It provides children with the foundations and knowledge for understanding the world. Our engagement with the local environment ensures children learn through varied first hand experiences of the world around them.
“Science is finding out things.” Dylan Y3
