Curiosity and questions

In Science we research and experiment.

Our science curriculum is intended to create scientists; children who are eager to investigate and to ask questions, seeking out answers to these. We provide opportunities for children to learn independently and collaboratively, with and without the class teacher to explore the world around them.  From EYFS to Year 6, children are given the opportunities to explore and investigate a variety of products and phenomena. We ensure opportunities for the 5 lines of enquiry are frequent and provide children with the chance to look at a variety of research and scientists.

What our pupils say about Science at Oakhill

I enjoy using the science equipment when we complete investigations.

Investigations are fun and they are the best part of our science learning.
