Science

Science is taught as practically as possible and the pupils benefit from trips and visits. A science week is an annual event where the children work across the school to investigate an aspect of science. This year a Mad Scientist came to school! Visits have been made to many places including the Think Tank, Hanbury Hall, the Nature Centre and Dudley Zoo.

With support the pupils are encouraged to observe, explore and ask questions about living things, materials and physical processes. They begin to work together to collect evidence to help them answer questions and to link this to simple scientific ideas. They evaluate evidence and consider whether tests or comparisons are fair. They use reference materials to find out more about scientific ideas. They share their ideas and communicate them using scientific language, drawings, charts and tables.
