We encourage our children to be curious, observe and make connections about themselves and the world around them. Through our subject big questions, we aim to stimulate a child’s curiosity in asking and answering questions as they use their senses to find out why things happen in the way they do.
We want our children to become ‘scientists’ and work and think scientifically as they develop good scientific skills, knowledge and understanding and use subject specific vocabulary to talk about their ideas and findings. First hand and real life opportunities through scientific investigation and experiments enables them to make meaning and connections to real life whilst bringing science to life.
Recap and review activities to begin science lessons ensures that children are building upon prior knowledge and that they are grasping a good understanding of scientific terminology by using this to move their thinking forward and to make connections.
