At Deykin Avenue School, we recognise the importance that science has in our everyday lives. Through weekly science lessons, we aim to enable our children to develop their knowledge and understanding of science and the world around them. We provide opportunities for children to experience science in a practical, hands on way. Our aim is for children to develop their curiosity and be confident to ask questions and to seek answers so that when they leave Deykin Avenue School, they have a range of scientific skills.
