In science we believe that pupils should be curious and ask questions about what they see occurring and how things behave. They are encouraged to use scientific vocabulary from an early age to talk about what they have found out and to communicate their ideas in a variety of ways.
As the pupils progress through school they should select the most appropriate ways to answer science questions using different types of scientific enquiry, including observing changes over different periods of time, noticing patterns, grouping and classifying things, carrying out comparative and fair tests and finding things out using a wide range of secondary sources of information. They also use scientific knowledge to draw conclusions based on their evidence and use their understanding to explain their findings.
