Science at Reevy Hill is planned so that it inspires pupils to be engaged and inquisitive about the world around them. Pupils gain knowledge, an understanding of the world we live in and refine skills in working scientifically in order to continue to be able to question critically and wonder about the world and their environment.
Science at Key Stage 1 enables children to form an understanding of living things, plants and animals as well as investigating everyday materials. Pupils develop their skills in observing and questioning. In Key Stage 2 these topics are revisited in more detail as well as investigating the wider world such as electricity, rocks, earth and space and forces. Pupils’ investigative skills are also deepened to allow them to plan, conduct, write up and draw conclusions from their scientific tests.
