Every child has a natural curiosity about the way the world works. Science lessons show how they can get answers to questions such as how plants grow or why it’s dark at night.

They begin to work together to collect evidence to help them answer questions and to link this to simple scientific ideas. They evaluate evidence and consider whether tests or comparisons are fair.
