Science at The Ridge involves the development of a sense of enquiry. It provides children with the opportunity to develop their natural curiosity, knowledge and understanding of important scientific ideas, processes and skills and enables them to relate these to their everyday experiences and understanding of the world around them.
We teach Science subject content using the 5 different types of enquiry;
- Comparative and fair testing
- Identifying, classifying and grouping
- Observing over time
- Pattern seeking
- Research using secondary sources
At The Ridge we develop the children’s Thinking Scientifically skills by teaching them to ask questions, plan, observe, measure, record, interpret and evaluate when they are investigating. We encourage the children to use precise scientific and technical vocabulary.
Here is a link that your child could look at to find out about interesting Science news and current developments.
