Hexham First School


Science is an integral part of the school curriculum. In the Foundation Stage Science is taught as part of the Area of Learning “Understanding of the World” and is approached in a holistic style involving lots of “hands on” activities. This ensures that children are encouraged to learn to observe objects and events carefully and talk about their findings.

In Key Stages 1 and 2 Science continues to be taught through the Creative Curriculum and involves lots of different types of practical work. Children are encouraged to approach scientific enquiry, and what to make of the evidence. As the children work, they develop skills such as choosing and using equipment safely, making observations, taking measurements and drawing conclusions.
