Ignite your curiosity – understand the world.

At Woodlands, we recognise how each child has their own individual learning style, that is why we value developing understanding and gathering scientific evidence through lots of different ways.

  • We are very lucky to have large school grounds which allow us to take our learning outside.  From Nursery to Key Stage Two, we use the outdoors to allow purposeful learning, such as studying local wildlife and looking at natural sources of light.
  • We ensure first-hand experiences underpin scientific investigation. This enables the development of scientific skills including predicting, hypothesising and evaluating. Through each science lesson, we tick off one of the working scientifically skills on the TAPs Working Scientifically Cycle. 

  • As we follow a knowledge-based curriculum, we also recognise that secondary sources can be vital for more complexed research, such as learning about an existing scientist or a theory.

Learning through these ways shapes inquisitive, independent, and resourceful scientists.
