Science

Super ScienceScience encourages children to become independent learners and thinkers through investigating the world around them. They are encouraged to develop an enquiring mind which continues through all areas of the curriculum.

Children have time to explore and play with materials and try out their ideas. They learn how to investigate systematically and learning is recorded in a variety of ways. Children are confident that it is OK to not always find an answer when exploring science.

The key objectives in the teaching of science are:

Developing an enquiring mind and a scientific approach to problems, acquiring and applying knowledge and learning skills, observing exploring and ordering observations, posting questions and devising tests or investigations, critically interpreting findings, identifying patterns, developing good attitudes of curiosity, co-operation, perseverance, open-mindedness, responsibility, self-criticism.
