Science in the Pre-Prep starts in the Early Years Foundation Stage. It is included in the area of learning called Understanding of the World. Through a wide range of fun, practical activities children start to explore, and find out about, their environment and the world in which they live. The children learn to be curious and investigate, solve problems, ask questions and use reference skills. They learn to use appropriate language and about the importance of health and safety.
At Key Stage One the emphasis in science is on practical, investigative activities continues. Children are encouraged to develop their thinking skills and are given opportunities to work individually and in groups. They build on their knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts and learn to collect and evaluate evidence. Whatever the age of the child science should be exciting, fun and stimulate a curiosity, which should be life long.
