- observation over time
- pattern seeking
- classifying and grouping
- comparative and fair testing
- research using secondary sources
Children use these skills to ask and answer questions about the world around us.
Topics are revisited and developed throughout the children's time at Wendell Park. Topics such as 'Materials' are taught in Key Stage 1 and studied again in greater depth in Key Stage 2. This allows children to build upon prior knowledge and increases their enthusiasm for the topic.
Specialist and technical vocabulary is taught and built up and effective questioning to communicate ideas is encouraged.
By the end of their time at Wendell Park, children have a love of investigation and the skills necessary to become the scientists of the futures who recognise Science's relevance in the world.
