Science is the most powerful method we have for understanding our world. Science fosters a healthy curiosity in children about natural phenomena and events in the environment in which we live. Through the use of an exciting curriculum, children are exposed to a wide range of scientific knowledge. The children are able to make links with existing concepts, have the opportunity to develop their own ideas, assisting in gaining a greater understanding of the science of our world.


Our intention is to inspire and enthuse the children to develop their own curiosity and questioning through independence, exploration and hands on experiences. Good teaching in science lights the fires of interest in children, promoting a commitment to learn and developing a deeper level of understanding. The children learn to question and discuss science-based issues that may affect their own lives, the directions of society and the future of the world.
