Vision for Science

 

At Oatlands Junior School, the high-quality Science Curriculum provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. All children learn about the essential aspects of Science including: knowledge, methods and processes, as well as developing a natural curiosity about different phenomena. Children are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse what has happened.

Science across school.

This week I have been lucky enough to visit a few of the classes around school. It has been wonderful to see real hands-on learning for Science. I also spoke to a lovely group on children about their Science experience at Oatlands. The feedback and enthusiasm when talking about Science was excellent! The children have some fantastic ideas about Science Week 2018 - watch this space!
