At St Basil’s we follow the National Curriculum for the teaching of Science. We aim to make Science enjoyable for the children and strive to include practical experience of science for pupils in all year groups. We always try to make links with other subjects such as Maths and English in Science lessons and this allows the children to master the skills they have learnt in these subject areas.
Through the science curriculum we nurture children’s natural curiosity and their on-going intellectual development. Through a practical, inquiry-based curriculum, children have the opportunity to explore and investigate their ideas. They are encouraged to be independent learners, planning their own investigations, asking questions, making predictions and drawing conclusions.
