Science

Science is taught within the Creative Curriculum with the aim that practical learning is not only fun but a key way to develop a deeper understanding of scientific concepts. In both Key Stages, the areas for learning are Scientific Enquiry, Life Processes and Living Things, Materials and their Properties, and Physical Processes.

We are very fortunate to have ample scope within our grounds for scientific explorations and where possible, children are taught science in a ‘hands on’ way.

We also have a close relationship with East Bergholt High School who periodically arrange joint science days in Key Stage 2.
