At Matthew Arnold, we encourage children to be inquisitive throughout their time at the school and beyond. Our science curriculum fosters a healthy curiosity in children about our universe and promotes respect for the living and non-living. We believe science encompasses the acquisition of knowledge, concepts, skills and positive attitudes. Throughout the programmes of study, the children will acquire and develop the key knowledge that has been identified within each unit across each year group, as well as the application of scientific skills. We ensure that their Working Scientifically skills are built-on and developed throughout the children's time at the school so that they can apply their knowledge of science when using equipment, confidently and continue to ask questions and be curious about their surroundings.
