So many discoveries have been made about the world that we live in. Learning this knowledge, so that pupils can develop their own understanding about the world around them, is an essential part of the science curriculum at EHPS.
Throughout Key Stage One and Two, our pupils discover and learn about: earth and space; forces and magnetism; variation and evolution in the natural world; materials; plants and animals; and light and sound.
Most importantly, it is essential that our pupils have the opportunity to use these key scientific ideas to work as scientists. We ensure that pupils have the opportunity to work scientifically in a wide variety of ways so that they can practise, develop and perfect their skills of scientific enquiry.
These skills are nurtured in so many different ways: exploring our local environment; practical, hands-on and real scientific enquiries; providing rich first-hand experiences through visitors to the school and trips out.
