For children, science is the exploration of the world around them through investigation
Science is the study of the physical world, involving a collection of facts from observations, physical experiments and working scientifically (Living Processes, Materials, Physical Processes) from which children form ideas of their world.
Science has a heavy emphasis on investigation involving prediction, observation, testing and evaluation. We believe that it is good practice for children to be encouraged to actively learn, by developing their own investigations based on ideas given by the teacher, and their own ideas.
Here are some examples from the half term project. The children and parents enjoyed researching and celebrating particular Scientists and finding out how they have influenced our world.
Well done to all for completing them, you really have worked hard.
