Being a Scientist

One of our values is Enquiry and nothing shows this more than when our children are being Scientists.  The children develop their skills in questioning, observing and measuring as they explore our world.

 The children learn through their science lessons a range of scientific skills through a range of scientific inquiry types- identifying, classifying & grouping; observing over time; pattern seeking; research secondary sources or comparative and fair testing.

The skills of being a Scientist follow this route-map:  

The Lair

Not only do we have fantastic outside grounds and diverse biodiversity including the Farm, we also have our very own Science Lab in ‘The Lair’ In The Lair, the children can conduct their experiments and find the answers to their own inquiries about the world around them.

Practical science allows children to explore the concepts taught.
