At Purston Infant School our vision is to give children a Science curriculum which enables them to explore and discover the world around them so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. To achieve this it involves exciting, practical hands on experiences that encourage curiosity and questioning.

Our aim is that these stimulating and challenging experiences will be memorable and enjoyable and will help children secure and extend their learning.

We believe that an effective science education encourages curiosity and allows the children to ask questions and explore. We ensure that our science lessons are accessible and engaging for all children and provide support and challenge where appropriate. We make full use of our outdoor environment and the wider community, as well as planning trips and evens to enrich our science provision.

The National Curriculum will provide a structure and skill development for the science curriculum being taught throughout the school, which is now linked, where possible to the theme topics to provide a creative scheme of work, which reflects a balanced programme of study.

We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life-long learners who will explore the world around them and allows them to be the best that they can be.
