West Twyford Primary School Achieving Together


In Science we follow the National Curriculum objectives in an exciting and interactive way that encourages children to be curious and observant about the world around them. The children learn to work scientifically, specifically in the areas of predicting, planning, setting up and performing a test, observing and measuring, recording, reporting and concluding. 


Our Aims:

  • For children to develop a lifelong curiosity and interest in the sciences.
  • For children to have the opportunity to learn through practical investigations, leading to them being equipped for life to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them.
  • For children to build on their skills in working scientifically, as well as on their scientific knowledge, as they develop greater independence in planning and carrying out fair and comparative tests to answer a range of scientific questions.
