The purpose of our science curriculum is to foster a sense of excitement and curiosity in children as they develop their understanding of the world around them.  Children learn through and enquiry-based approach, involving exploration, investigation, discussion and hands-on experiences.  We aim for children to develop an appreciation of how science has changed our lives and the important role it plays in the world’s future prosperity.
