At West Didsbury CE Primary, we consider Science to be a very important subject as it equips children with essential skills such as: observing, explaining, predicting and analysing which can then be transferred into other areas of their lives. Children absolutely love to enquire, explore and experiment, and in doing so, they deepen their knowledge and understanding of God’s creation.
In EYFS, Science is embedded into all areas of the curriculum; children carry out a lot of their learning outdoors, for example taking part in weekly welly walks to observe and explore our local environment. In KS1 and KS2, teachers follow the new curriculum and plan lessons that are varied, practical and challenging. Children are encouraged to carry out child-led investigations and use appropriate terminology in both their spoken and written work.
