Science provides the foundations for understanding the world around us and allows children to ask questions and explore. At Hillbrook, children are encouraged to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about the world. They are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. This is done through talk and allowing children to investigate different areas in order to become inquisitive human beings. This develops a need to want to discover answers for themselves, fostering learning.
