Knowledge & Understanding of the World

Science is approached in such a way so as to encourage the interest and curiosity of the world around them.
Children are involved in practical investigations which build on their own interests and experience. Individual and group skills of planning, decision making, investigating and communicating results, as well as observing, classifying, recording, making and testing hypotheses, designing experiments and drawing information from evidence are vital to science-based activities but also have a much wider application.
