At Brookfield Infant School we love getting hands on and messy! This is very useful when experimenting and investigating! We are lucky enough to have a great outside area which we are developing in stages to support children's outdoors learning. Children often find out about the world around them, animal habitats and plant growth when exploring our nature trail. In Science we encourage children to record their work in a variety of ways; through diagrams, charts, labels, photos and writing. We also find out how much children understand through lots of talking! Staff ask open ended questions and promote peer discussion. This really helps us see what children know and their depth of understanding on a topic.
