About Science Vision at Sacred Heart
At Sacred Heart 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 participating in Science by demonstrating a willingness to modify ideas and take risks. They seek to collaborate and work co-operatively with their peers.
- Observation over time
