At Woodlands Infant and Nursery School all children are encouraged to scientifically explore the world around them. Thinking skills and an enquiring mind are positively encouraged – we want our children to ask why!

Our children learn about science within the themed topic curriculum we plan. We are keen for children to understand that science occurs everywhere and so each topic has a broad mix of biology, chemistry and physics contained within.

Looking forward, we are working to ensure that our science provision continues to meet the requirements of the new National Curriculum as well as inspire the future generation of great scientists. We regularly welcome visitors and scientists to work with the children, others who can encourage awe and wonder and develop a deep seated love of science.

At Woodlands we want to develop curious of minds, we already know that our children are great scientists, they just need a little time and assistance to refine their thoughts and encouraging to explore and continue enquiring why.
