Our vision at Weston Turville CE School is to give children a Science Curriculum which enables them to explore and discover scientific phenomena in the world around them confidently and independently. In order to achieve this, we offer our children engaging, practical and purposeful experiences, that encourage curiosity, with opportunities to ask and answer questions, take risks, experiment, reflect, and learn from their mistakes. Young children are naturally curious and passionate about learning; we provide a stimulating science curriculum that nurtures children’s natural curiosity and their on-going intellectual development. Through a hands-on, enquiry-based curriculum, children will experience the joy of having wonderful ideas, exploration and investigation, the joy of finding out. Our aim is that these stimulating and challenging experiences help children secure and extend their scientific knowledge and vocabulary. We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life-long learners who will explore the world around them with curiosity, excitement and wonder.
