Science in the National Curriculum is split into three specific areas; living things, materials and their properties, physical processes. Our science topics are planned to cover these three areas. This scientific knowledge is taught through investigative processes during which the children learn to plan investigations, obtain evidence and consider their results. Skills such as observing, questioning, predicting, measuring, recording, evaluating and communicating their findings (orally, graphically and in writing) are all developed as children move through the school. Once again, the computer is an important tool for learning. We also make much use of our school grounds and the local environment.
