"Pupils are proud of their school. Their good behaviour and positive attitudes make a strong contribution to their success."

The main focus of teaching science throughout school is to enable pupils to experience and observe phenomena, looking more closely at the natural and humanly-constructed world around them. They will be encouraged to be curious and ask questions about what they notice. They will be helped to develop their understanding of scientific ideas by using different types of scientific enquiry to answer their own questions, including observing changes over a period of time, noticing patterns, grouping and classifying things, carrying out simple comparative tests, and finding things out using secondary sources of information. They will then begin to develop simple scientific language to talk about what they have found out and communicate their ideas to a range of audiences in a variety of ways.
