Scientists at All Saints’ explore, investigate and ask questions!
At All Saints' we love science and see science as an important area of the curriculum. As such time is dedicated to science each and every week. In addition, we hold an annual science and environment 'awe and wonder' week in school, during which our children are engaged in a range of wow! science activities and investigations that ends with a whole school and community science fair for all to attend.
We encourage the use of the fantastic outdoor space that we are so very lucky to have at All Saints'.
We have a wide range of visitors who come into school to enahnce the teaching and learning of science, and we often take our children out on visits linked to learning in science, these first hand experiences 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 exploring and we place a great emphasis on the importance of working scientifically.
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.
We offer an extra curricular science club each year, which alternates between being open for all with a love of science and being targeted at those identifed as more able in this area. We are so very lucky to have staff who are dedicated to running this club.
Our school lead a science cluster group, with 8 schools now taking part in this cluster, sharing good practice and moderating science across our schools.
