Our high quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity. During their time at Sunning Hill all children are taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, children are encouraged to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. We plan and deliver an engaging and challenging science curriculum where learning is child-led and knowledge and skills are transferrable to the real world. The use of outdoor learning is promoted to enhance pupils’ first-hand experience of science in addition to our science trips. 

We encourage children to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring around them, predict how things will behave and analyse causes of phenomena they observe or measure. From a young age children are familiarised with the role scientists play in society. They are encouraged to use these role models to inspire them to take risks and be confident and open when trying new things.
