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.

  • Rainbow hunt – can you find something of every colour of the rainbow in your garden/ local woodland.
  • Can you identify local plants/ wildlife. Children could create reports or a David Attenborough style documentary.
  • Grow your own plants.
  • Have a go at growing a plant from a clipping.
  • Habitats – what local wildlife lives around you? Can you make your garden more wildlife friendly?
  • Build a bug hotel.
  • Make natural paints using plants/flowers

We have also some attached some home learning activities from twinkle and from the Primary Science Teaching Trust.
