Science teaching at Windy Nook fosters and develops pupils’ curiosity in the subject whilst also helping them to fulfil their potential. Through building key knowledge, concepts and skills, pupils are encouraged to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They are also encouraged to explain what is occurring through conceptual models and practical activities that progressively build a deep understanding of the science curriculum. Children will work and record in a practical scientific manner on a half termly basis. It is expected a progressive approach to recording scientific enquiry is established across Key Stage One and Two. Where applicable, the correct age appropriate maths is to be utilised.  Each year group has a scientist they are expected to study. This is in a bid to help children become ready for next steps in their education, by giving them an insight into influential scientists which have shaped our world today.
