SCIENCE AT SWISS GARDENS

At Swiss Gardens our intent is to give every child a broad and balanced Science curriculum which enables them to confidently explore and discover what is around them. We aim for them to be excited, inquisitive and to learn from first-hand experience so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

The Science curriculum fosters a healthy curiosity in children about our universe and promotes respect for the living and non-living, this starts in the Early Years Foundation Stage (knowledge and understanding of the world) where children explore and investigate, make observations and talk about what they see and find out.  

Throughout the programmes of study, the children will acquire and develop the key knowledge that has been identified within each unit and across each year group. Whilst we follow the national curriculum, the school’s approach to science takes account of the school’s environment and our surroundings.  Wherever possible we try to incorporate science in our cross curriculuar approach, trying to make sure children see a reason for scientific process applicable in the world around them. 

We ensure access to people with specialist expertise and places of scientific interest as part of the school’s commitment to learning outside the classroom and in the community.
