Kennington Academy’s Aims In Science

Here at Kennington Academy, our teaching of science aims to develop the learning of children to become scientists; planning and undertaking scientific investigations and considering evidence derived from them. We encourage children to develop knowledge and understanding of important scientific ideas, processes and skills and relate these to everyday experiences, as well as promoting curiosity about the things children observe, experience and explore relating to the world around them.
