Kitchen safety with CookieOur aim is to build on the children’s natural enthusiasm and curiosity to find out about the world around them and make better sense of their environment.

In the early years, science teaching is based on everyday observations and simple activities. As the children progress through the school, they are introduced to more complex scientific ideas. We aim to teach the scientific skills of observing, measuring, classifying, predicting, hypothesising, experimenting and interpreting discoveries.

Science visit to Westminster School

We also teach children to act in a safe and responsible manner when involved in scientific activities. The curriculum is governed covers experimental and investigative science, life processes and living things, materials and their properties and physical processes.


As well as our regular lessons, we enrich our science curriculum in a number of ways, including:

- Visits to secondary schools (see above)

Liquid Nitrogen lesson (Y1)

- Trips to the Science Museum and other scientific establishments

- Inviting visitors, including parents, to demonstrate science in school (see right for our liquid Nitrogen lesson for Year 1)
