Science is one of the core curriculum subjects. Children love to find out about the world in which they live and sometimes as adults we would be surprised at how much learning we take for granted, and how many questions children have as part of their natural curiosity. We teach children to use their senses to observe, to think of reasons why things happen and to design a fair test to find out whether their ideas are right or wrong. Children love Science because they are free to make assumptions without fear of getting the answer incorrect. From year 3 Science is timetabled to encourage logical thinking, sequential recording, observational recording, scientific debate and the sharing of ideas. To see the topics covered in each year group, please see the long term plan below.
