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.
- This area focuses on sound, forces and electricity.
Life processes and living things
- Children learn about humans, animals, plants and the environment
