Science at Farnborough Grange
At Farnborough Grange Nursery and Infant School we know our children are naturally curious about the world around them. Through a strong emphasis on investigative work, children are encouraged to think and work like real-life scientists.
Through our exciting and relevant enquiry-based curriculum, we ensure that children develop skills that allow them to work scientifically. Therefore, children become confident in:
Asking questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways
Observing closely, using simple equipment
Designing and performing simple tests
Identifying and classifying objects and materials
Using their observations and ideas to answer real-life scientific questions
Gathering and recording data to help in answering questions and proving their answers
Our curriculum draws from our local environment, where possible, and also supports children to explore ethical and environmental issues where appropriate keeping up to date with current scientific news. Each year group have a longitudinal study which allows them to answer a question through repeated, long-term observation, showing them the importance of resilience when it comes to solving problems. By the end of KS1 we will ensure a continually evolving knowledge and bank of core skills and vocabulary which will equip them for an ever changing world, where they will continue to let their curiosity grow.
