Science is an essential underpinning to modern society and an exciting way to understand and learn about the world. All our pupils participate in weekly science lessons and we hope to give them a wider awareness of how many parts of life work - from ourselves and our bodies to the latest technology - as well as promote the curiosity and questioning that will allow them to be confident and informed citizens in adult life.

In Key Stage 2 science the children learn the safe working and practical skills involved in investigating and measuring that are important for becoming curious and capable scientists when they move up to the Secondary School. Working together in small groups and using a properly equipped laboratory and specialist science teachers, lessons are made as enjoyable and as hands-on as possible, developing pupils' curiosity and broadening their understanding and vocabulary, underpinned by highly visual learning.
