Young children first encounter science when they start using their senses to interact with their environment and make sense of the world around them. Adults around them help facilitate a child’s scientific knowledge by encouraging them to be curious, to observe, question and reflect on their investigations. Our teachers actively encourage exploration and provide purposefully planned experiences, materials, techniques and technologies to enhance this.
Develop inquiry skills. At WeCare we support students to display their curiosity about science objects, materials, activities and long-term investigations. We encourage children to observe, question, predict and investigate materials in and out of the classroom all whilst using basic science terms and communicating with other people to share their observations.
Observe and investigate matter and energy. Our teachers help students to observe, sort and describe objects and materials based on size, shape, color, texture etc. We provide a range of activities enabling them to understand changes in liquids and solids when substances are combined, heated or cooled. We also encourage children to investigate sound, heat, light as well as how and why things move.
Observe and investigate natural living things. Understanding each other, animals and the planet is important to any child’s development. Materials and activities are created so students can investigate and compare the basic physical characteristics of living things as well as observe the similarities and differences between them. We encourage our students to explore natural habitats, the basic needs for different living things and to identify how these changes over time and the cycles of change that affect living things.
