The science lessons and curriculum we provide help our pupils to make sense of the world around them and equip them with the skills to investigate a scientific question and review evidence. In 2014, the 4E’s were developed as our teaching principles for science. These are ; ENGAGE, EXPLORE, ENQUIRE and EVIDENCE. Where possible children are engaged in activities that allow them to explore and experience , first hand, scientific concepts and phenomena.
The enquiring skills are taught and applied by children using a variety of real-life contexts spanning the following areas of science; materials, forces, humans and other animals, plants, light, space and sound. We use ICT to support/ enrich learning in science wherever possible ( ipads, cameras, data-loggers and websites)
