At Oatlands we place huge importance on the practical, cross-curricular teaching and learning of science. We aim to develop the natural curiosity of our pupils through hands-on experiences that encourage them to hypothesise, predict and analyse.
We strive to
It is our intention through investigative science that our pupils will deepen their respect for the natural world and all its phenomena as well as increase their care and appreciation of it. With this in mind, we run a whole school Eco Club which guides and supports our school to be green, clean and sustainable.
At Oatlands Infant School, we want to prepare our pupils for the digital world we live in today. Technology is changing the lives of everyone and through teaching computing, we equip our children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology.
It is our intention to enable our children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in an effective way.
Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this both explicitly within computing and also across other curriculum subjects.
