Science

 

We believe that science is about acquiring scientific knowledge through experimental testing of ideas and research. We encourage the children to order their ideas with increasing sophistication, so that they are able to interpret their results and findings with accuracy. The children are encouraged to become increasingly independent, taking more and more responsibility for their own learning. Communication skills are essential in science and children learn how to communicate their ideas and findings in a variety of ways. Wherever possible, science is taught through first hand experiences, supported by secondary resources and information technology.

 

Science provides a unique opportunity for children to explore the real world in an exciting and meaningful way and later to apply scientific principles in a variety of contexts in order to answer questions. Our aim is to retain and develop the children’s natural sense of curiosity, awe and wonder about the world in which they live.
