Science at Maun Infant and Nursery School

At Maun, we know that science is important in every aspect of daily life. Science is a core subject taught within Primary Schools across England and we hope to give the teaching and learning of Science the prominence it deserves and requires.


We want to encourage our children to be naturally inquisitive about the wider world around them, promoting respect for living and non-living things. Our outdoor environment, including our forest helps our children to foster a healthy curiosity in pupils about our world.

Children develop key enquiry skills associated with Science, as well as increasing their own knowledge and understanding.


At Maun, using both the EYFS Curriculum and the National Curriculum, our science teaching offers opportunities for children to ensure that their skills are built on and developed throughout their education. Investigations are an important part of the Science curriculum, allowing children to apply their knowledge when using equipment and explain concepts and theories confidently. We aim to encourage children’s resilience to adapt thinking when difficulties arise.


Teachers create a positive attitude to science learning within their classrooms, reinforcing an expectation that all children are capable of achieving high standard in Science at Maun.
