Science at Olton Primary


Primary science can be split into four broad topics:


 Scientific enquiry / Investigative skills

  • One of the most important aspects is thinking about safety, so always talk about wearing protective clothing, washing hands, and using the correct, well-maintained equipment.


  • These activities encourage children to start understanding the properties of and differences between materials and their possible uses. 

Physical processes

  • This area focuses on sound, forces and electricity. 

Life processes and living things

  • Children learn about humans, animals, plants and the environment
