Our science curriculum intends to develop curiosity and a thirst for knowledge. We intend that our children explore their understanding of the world through innovation and thinking creatively. Skills for working scientifically are key to our science ethos, enabling our pupils to question and investigate through real-life and practical experiences, thus developing knowledge and skills for life.

At our school we use both our indoor and outdoor environment to support the teaching and learning of Science. We are extremely fortunate to have a rich outdoor learning environment which includes our Wild Garden, Sensory Garden and our Vegetable Garden.  Nursery and Reception also have wonderful outdoor areas to support their learning which the children access daily during continuous provision.  All these areas are regularly used to develop the children’s Science skills and knowledge of plants, animals and habitats.

In the Early Years, practitioners regularly provide new materials and interesting things for children to explore and investigate and encourage children to talk about them. Our skilled staff interact effectively with the children to encourage them to use their senses to explore the natural world, materials and forces. Our curriculum in the Foundation Stage is carefully planned to ensure the children have the knowledge and skills to excel in Science in Key Stage 1.

What Science looks like in our school


We also provide many opportunities for the children to further their learning through participating in Science workshops and visits.  In the Foundation Stage, the children join in with Outdoor Learning Days in our Wild Garden to learn about natural materials, plants and animals, Reception participate in a trip to a farm and Nursery are visited by owls to help them learn about nocturnal animals.  Year 1 and Year 2 children both participate in Science workshops with the scientist, Adrian Bowden and enjoy his Travelling Science shows.  Year 1 children are visited by Zoo2U to learn about reptiles and Year 2 children take part in pond dipping sessions at Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden.
