Science is taught each term as part of topic work following the National Curriculum. Children are encouraged to think about their own understanding of the world around them, to ask questions and to explore finding the answers to these questions through investigations. Investigative science is the core element of the science curriculum and at least half of science taught is practical investigation. Children are taught how to ask a question and then test this through a planned investigation which involves prediction, fair testing, collecting and presenting results, and drawing conclusions.
