At St Denys C.E. Infant School, we aim to:

  • Encourage the children’s curiosity.

  • Enable them to acquire knowledge with understanding.

  • Develop ways of thinking, investigating and communicating ideas.

We provide an experience-rich environment where the children are able to find out about the world around them and extend their experiences in Science.  They are given opportunities to:

  • Observe and explore using their senses.

  • Ask questions.

  • Collect, communicate and evaluate evidence.

  • Make suggestions and develop the confidence to test their ideas.

  • Collaborate with others.

  • Develop skills to carry out investigations safely.

  • Develop and use appropriate vocabulary.

  • Children will be made aware of the risks to health and safety when handling living things, materials and equipment.They will be taught to take necessary precautions.

  • Children will be taught to respect the environment and all living things.
