'Love One Another As I Have Loved You' (John 15:12)

* Squirrels Class swimming lesson this Tuesday *

Our Science pathway is a sequential curriculum designed to encourage children to be inspired by the wonders of the world. Our learning outside the classroom and enhanced curriculum across the school promotes opportunities for children to investigate and question the world around them. We teach children to work independently and collaboratively so that they can articulate, present and discuss their learning confidently.  We aim for pupils to recognise the importance of science in daily life both in their time at school and beyond.
