At Nyewood CE Junior School we are passionate about developing investigative and inquisitive minds. Science stimulates and excites children about phenomena and events in the quickly changing world around them. We aim to allow our children the opportunity to imagine their roles in this future world, and excite them about the endless possibilities that science can bring to it. We use a hands-on, practical approach to fire up enthusiasm and develop independent thinking skills through investigations.
We encourage children to use their own natural curiosities to drive their learning of science, while it is also gives them opportunities to apply and develop maths and writing skills. Children are taught to discriminate, classify, recognise relationships and select information from a variety of sources. They develop skills in hypothesising, testing and evaluating ideas, as well as communicating using scientific language, drawings, charts and tables.
