Science at Heron Park is planned and taught with the aim to ensure our children are engaged, enthused and excited about science.

Our lessons are predominantly practical and through our carefully designed science curriculum, our children are encouraged to develop their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding, while increasing their curiosity about natural wonders, the world we live in and outer space.

By providing high quality science education that directly follows the National Curriculum, children at Heron Park are taught to recognise how science can be used to explain what is happening, make predictions about how things might change, and investigate different possibilities.
