The building blocks for this subject are set out in Statutory Framework for EYFS: Understanding the world which involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people and the environment.
Scientific enquiry empowers the children by developing important skills such as:
Observational and measuring skills
Skills in seeking patterns and making connections
Being able to work systematically
What does it look like at KSPA?
Science is a practical subject where children discover things by doing experiments for themselves. We use good quality practical equipment including ICT where possible to enhance the children’s learning. Questions are the start of any scientific enquiry. We also provide opportunities for the children to explore and learn beyond regular classroom activity, such as using our outdoor environment, Field Study Centres, Science day trips and through science professionals visiting our school.
