All pupils at Ashton Gate are encouraged to explore and investigate the world around them, and their ideas about it, using problem solving, a real life context and hands on exploration. We believe that science matters and that scientific thinking is for everyone. We are a scientifically literate community. Children are encouraged to be curious, and follow their own lines of enquiry, where appropriate.
Scientific understanding and skills are carefully planned to ensure progression of skills and knowledge across the school. Science is taught regularly, to ensure that skills can be built upon effectively.
