nursery outside

The children experience science through observing the world around them and through topic work. A wide range of support materials is available. The children are supported in their investigations by their vocabulary and maths skills.

Our aim is to encourage children’s natural curiosity with regard to their environment and enable them to test their ideas by using scientific methods.

We make our scientific activities very practical. The children are encouraged to think carefully, ask questions, comment upon their methods and explain findings.

The children carry out simple experiments that involve hypothesising, questioning, testing, careful observation and recording. These activities are the basis upon which later science work can be built.
