What makes an effective Science Student at Weston?

A curiosity about the world around them, an ability to think independently and answer their own scientific questions, an enquiring mind, an ability to make predictions and test them and a knowledge of how to carry out an investigation scientifically.

About Science

At Weston, Science is a time for children to explore their curiosity. Children undertake practical experiments to investigate questions they pose. They predict and then explore questions on a number of topics. In addition they build skills around scientific enquiry and learning about life processes and living things, materials and their properties and physical processes. Children are confident in doing Science by demonstrating a willingness to modify ideas and take risks. They seek to collaborate and work co-operatively with their peers.
