We are keen that children should develop enquiring minds and a scientific approach to problems and investigations, so that they can further explore and understand the world around them.
Contexts and activities are provided so that they can become involved in comparing, questioning and testing, which encourage skills of observation, planning, predicting, measuring, communicating etc., and give the children the confidence to handle tangible objects in direct learning situations. Everyday objects and events can provide many scientific and technological learning opportunities and a broad basic knowledge and understanding are promoted by relevance to everyday life.
