Science is our way of understanding the world we live in. In Science children are taught through carrying out investigations:
- how to observe carefully
- to record accurately
- to question
- to interpret
Through these activities children will learn to build upon previous knowledge and understanding. The teaching of science follows the recommendations in the new National Curriculum and is linked directly to class topics and in some instances may be the central focus alongside the core literacy theme.
Here at All Souls we encourage the children to become environmentally aware citizens and have set up an Eco Team as well as introduced recycling bins across the school. We actively take part in the National Science weeks with a variety of additional science related activities and Collective Worships to raise the profile of science in the school. In addition to this, class teachers are asked to include at least once science focused educational visit per year to enhance the children’s learning.
