At Cottesbrooke Infant & Nursery School, we aim to provide children with exciting experiences to develop their curiosity of the world around them.


In Nursery and Reception we offer many opportunities for pupils, both indoors and in our outdoor learning area. The emphasis is on first-hand, practical experience, exploring objects and events, and beginning to develop scientific vocabulary.


In Key Stage 1, our teaching closely follows the National Curriculum for Science. Pupils learn about the scientific process and develop knowledge and vocabulary through the topics of plants, animals, materials, seasonal changes and healthy living.
