At Kings Avenue, both science knowledge and scientific enquiry are central to our Science curriculum. Children are taught key scientific concepts alongside the skills in working scientifically. We encourage the natural curiosity that children have about the world around them. Children are encouraged to develop their own questions and to consider ways of finding out answers, often through exploration. In doing so they develop problem solving skills, they think creatively and acquire a thorough understanding of scientific concepts.

Science is taught throughout the school through a wide range of topics as laid out in the National Curriculum. Lessons include practical activities, observations, exploring the outdoor environment, setting up tests and recording and analysing results. Children also experience Science through an annual science week as well as Science trips, visitors and workshops.
At Kings Avenue we equip children with the scientific knowledge and skills required to understand the uses and implications of Science for both today and for the future.
