Science teaches an understanding of natural phenomena. We aim to inspire and excite the children's curiosity about the world around them and develop their skills of enquiry and investigation. Children learn to observe, explore and ask questions about living things, materials and physical processes. Through practical experiences they learn to plan and carry out investigations, record their results in a variety of ways and draw conclusions. Children begin to appreciate the way in which science may affect their own lives, contributes to technological change and the future of the world.

As a school we have been listening to pupil and teacher voice in order to collaboratively develop a vision for science that is at the heart of our teaching and learning. Alongside this the children are actively encouraged to share their views on different aspects of the subject in order to highlight what we are doing well and what can be improved. As staff we have also been considering ways to develop science capital in the form of 10 tips for inclusive science teaching.
