At Surrey Square, our curriculum is driven by purposeful outcomes, is relevant to each and every child and is expansive beyond the national curriculum so that our children will know more, do more and BE more!
We understand that science is about developing an understanding and making sense of our environment.
We want our children to become creative problem solvers and be encouraged to raise scientific questions and to choose ways to investigate them.
Science in our school is about developing children’s ideas and inquiry skills, to enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, motivated by their interests.
We want the children to have access to a wide range of STEM experiences to broaden their opportunities for the development of scientific understanding.
