Science

We dedicate a full week every half term to teaching science, embedding all 5 key enquiry skills, which are: Research, Observing over time, Identifying and classifying, Pattern seeking and Fair testing. We use our engaging storytelling curriculum to give real life context to the areas of learning. Using this and a diverse range of external trips, we support the children’s learning to ensure depth of understanding and a curious and interested mind. We take part in National Science week, inviting experts and practicing scientists into school to facilitate class and whole school workshops and assemblies, such as Science Boffins and The Science Museum. The children also have an opportunity to participate in an exciting after school science club.  

"I've had a really enjoyable and interesting time getting to know your lovely school today - everyone was so friendly and welcoming. There were so many things to see and share. Thank you very much for giving your time so generously. I hope we can keep in touch in the future, Happy Storytelling!"
