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.  

We once looked at the effects of an antibiotic on the human microflora. This experience we conducted with the drug, introducing it into an aqueous solution with bacteria of the stomach and the bacteria's Streptococcus pyogenes. infections. Because of its activity, the antibiotic destroyed the molecules of the infection. To a lesser extent, it had an effect on gastric bacteria. Thus, it can be used as a remedy for streptococcal disease.
