Our Science Vision

Making sense of our world and beyond through excitement and exploration.

Our Principles of Science Teaching

We know that great science happens in our school when...

  • Our curriculum relates to the real world and real life skills.
  • The children are engaged in interactive lessons.
  • There are opportunities for children to lead their own learning.
  • Children are motivated and achieve in science.
  • Children feel secure and confident in exploring their own ideas.
  • Children can apply other curriculum skills with purpose.

Home Learning

It is a great time (weather permitting) to explore the science of nature. Spring has brought us so many changes in our environment and is a great inspiration for art with all the many colours.  Things such as bird feeders are easy to make at home and children can support wildlife. Children can also enjoy observing the different birds that come to their feeders. Rain collectors are also easy to make with bottles that would normally go out for recycling and allow children to collect data at home. They could then create a graph in purple mash to show their results.
