East Acton Primary School "Growing Together"


In Science, we aim to inspire and foster children’s natural curiosity and interest in the world around them. We develop children’s scientific knowledge and understanding of this world through encouraging them to question, involving them in practical investigations and teacher led demonstrations. Children are encouraged to record the results and to draw upon them to reach scientific conclusions. During their time at the school, the children are introduced to many scientific concepts and skills which together will encourage them to develop an enquiring mind and a scientific approach to problem-solving.

Science is taught progressively allowing children to make links from year to year in their investigations and enquiry of the sections of the National Curriculum: Living Processes and Living Things, Materials and their Properties and Physical Processes.
