Science in School

Children at our school have the opportunity to explore a range of science concepts through enquiry based learning and practical, hands-on experiences. Children investigate, solve problems and ask questions. We strongly encourage enthusiasm and curiosity in order for children to make better sense of the world we live in. There are a number of educational visits and visitors planned every year to enrich our science curriculum.



What has been happening in Science around school?

Zoolab Visit to Year 1 and 2

Children enjoyed the fascinating experience of holding, touching, observing and learning new facts about animals from around the world.

Hatching Chicks Project

All year groups had the opportunity to visit our hatching chicks and to learn about the early life cycle.


Fly to the Line - STEM competition

Year 4 and 5 have worked hard to design, make and modify their team glider and our class finalists are now preparing to compete against other schools! There was a huge ‘buzz’ on the playground when both year groups got together to test their gliders.

Little Einstein’s Science Club

Key Stage 2 have been investigating a range of different concepts and have been left speechless by the magic of science.

Below are a number of science experiments which children can try at home. Why not share what you have been learning at home? You may even have your own ideas to share with others. Send your photographs in to school!
