Science

This year we are aiming to achieve the Primary Science Quality Mark. 

We love exploring our wonderful world in our science lessons.

“Taught weekly, hands-on, collaborative thinking, practical and fun – this is us!”

Our work in Science is planned from the North Yorkshire Scheme of Work. We have exciting WOW science lessons built into our curriculum with hands-on opportunities to learn basic scientific concepts. Our children have the opportunity to dissect hearts and eyeballs as well as create lava lamps, balloon hovercrafts, storm clouds in a jar, colourful flower experiments and kitchen experiments with lemons, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. We hold whole school themed science days to see progression in skills and knowledge across all ages. Our Bubble Science Day was a huge hit with children and adults

Science long term plan

Science quote from our dads

“Who killed Dilly the Dinosaur” science experiment -what a fantastic event that was. I thought all the children were really engaged they obviously had the debate elements and the questioning and analytical side to it but I could not believe how much I enjoyed it. It was honestly one of the best school events I have been to . I would have loved to have seen the children make some of their decisions and seen the thought process end to end.

Some of the comments from the chap who ran the session were fantastic. The children were a real credit……. great event!!!!!

‘I wish I could go back to school and go to their school…’
