Science is the asking and answering of questions through exploration and investigation.‚Äč It fosters curiosity, independent thought and the ability to study the world around us. At James Dixon, we teach Science through an engaging and inspiring Science curriculum, across a variety of themes and topics. Children are given numerous opportunities to  investigate and experience things first hand. Learning in Science is supported through our children’s garden, forest school and dedication to outdoor learning.


At James Dixon we all encourage ALL children to:

  • develop enquiry skills through activities designed to motivate and challenge

  • increase scientific knowledge through hands-on, practical experiences.

  • be independent thinkers when planning, carrying out and evaluating investigations.
