Oxon CE Primary School


Science is an important subject which is studied throughout the school.

In the Early Years Foundation Stage, science forms part of the work covering ‘knowledge and understanding of the world’.  In this area of learning children are developing the skills and understanding that help them make sense of the world.  They do this through exploration, observation, problem solving, prediction, critical thinking, decision making and discussion.

These early experiences and skills are developed as children move through school where the emphasis continues to be on developing scientific thinking through practical and investigative work. 

The school has a wide range of resources available to support teaching and learning in science and teachers make extensive use of the outdoor environment including our easily accessible wildlife area with a pond.
