Science is an area of study about the natural world that is based on facts learned through experiments and observation. Science starts with a question, but it's more than just being curious about answers; it's a system of observations and experiements to find those answers.


This is the study of living organisms on our planet. This is from the smallest microbe to the largest animal (the blue whale).       



This is the study of how natural forces interact such as gravity and how they shape the world around us.                                          



This is the study of how different chemicals and substances react with each other. We look at this practically including cooking reactions.

  • Nursery

    In nursery, pupils look at science through art. They mix colours in painting, and explore construction.

  • Reception

    In reception, children look at experimenting with colours and textures in art, using props in play to explore science and sharing their work to help development of explanations.

  • KS1 and KS2

    In KS1 and KS2, Southville makes use of a science program called Developing Experts to inform our teaching. This follows the national curriculum and they focus their teaching to ensure that different career paths using those core principals are discussed to engage the child and ground it in the real-world rather than as a concept.


One core element of science is exploration of ideas and proving whether their hypothesis was correct or incorrect. As a result, children at Southville will do a range of experiments in their classroom lessons.
