Science

Introduction

In Science, we try to encourage children to develop their enquiry and investigation skills throughout a range of exciting topics.  We also like to have themed days, where all the children's scientific skills are utilised!

 

Curriculum

We cover the key skills from the National Curriculum, but through exciting topics which are question-based and focus on developing a child-centred approach to investigation.  Some recent examples are: 

  • Could Spiderman really exist?
  • Why is the Amazon so amazing?
  • Could I be the next Nintendo apprentice?

 

See our Learning Challenge curriculum document and class curriculum maps for more units.

 

How can I help my child learn well in this subject? 

Science is all around us, so try linking topics and new learning to the real-world wherever possible.  Also, try to get children to teach you about what they have learnt, using new terminology.   Turning science knowledge into art projects can also be a good opportunity to discuss what they have learnt.

 

Reading technology sections of newspapers or watching documentaries are also excellent ways of developing your child's scientific understanding.  Going for walks or visits and discussing the natural world is also highly beneficial.
