Our Science Curriculum
We live in an increasingly scientific and technological age where children need to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to prepare them for life in the 21st century.
We, at Donnington Primary School believe that the teaching of science develops in children an interest and curiosity about the world in which they live, and fosters in them a respect for the environment.
We aim that all pupils:

· Understanding of the concepts and knowledge of science

· Develop practical skills and their ability to make accurate and appropriate measurements
