Science is taught on a 2-year rolling programme in key stage one and in year groups in key stage 2. We see science as an important area of the curriculum and as such time is dedicated to science each and every week. In addition, we hold an annual science week in school when our children are engaged in a range of wow! science activities and investigations. We encourage the use of the fantastic outdoor space that we are so very lucky to have at All Saints'. We have visitors come into school to lead science workshops 3 times per year, these are always very popular and enjoyed by all! Adrian Bowden and his Travelling Science Show are well loved by our school (see document below to find out what Adrian has to say about our school!)
Through science we encouarge our children to think for themselves, to suggest and test their own lines of enquiry and never be afraid to have a go! We believe that science is about finding out through doing adn place a great emphasis on the importance of worksing scientifically, with children leading learning wherever possible.
Children, staff and parents are invited to share their real life science experiences by contributing to our science selfie zone. You can contribute to this area by sending photographs of your experiences of science in the real world via Class Dojo-thank you to all who have already shared their images this way.
This year we are working towards the Primary Science Quality Mark. Our initial self evaluation was returned to us by the organisers indicating that we should aim high and strive to achieve the gold award...no pressure!
We offer an extra curricular science club for those identifed as gifted and talented in this area. The club takes place each Monday after school. We are so very lucky to have staff who are dedicated to running this club.
