Science

The key skill science sessions follow the required teaching units from the National Curriculum. Where possible this begins with an investigation; therefore, developing and embedding the skills of SC1. In the afternoon sessions teachers develop ‘awe and wonder’ moments linked to the theme sparking fascination, interest and curiosity in all areas of science. Each investigation could take on a different focus developing the overall SC1 skills. These include the following: predictions, fair tests, recording results and analysing data. These activities allow the children to apply their knowledge from morning sessions but at a greater depth. Children will develop the investigation independently through peer and adult questioning and their own interest and curiosity.
