Science Enrichment


British Science Week 2023

The theme this year was connections, and we’ve chosen to focus on the connections we have with our planet and those our planet has with us. Each class had a focus based on the UN sustainability goals. At the end of the week we had a science fair and everyone had the opportunity to explore each others learning.


Year 3/4 Science Club

We are working towards our Crest Superstar Challenge award in Science Club and have done lots of great science investigations. Here are some of our investigations.

A hole in my bucket - we tested different materials to fix a hole.

Toast - we investigated whether toast always falls butter side down and whether different toppings made any difference.

STEM Week 2022

We have had some fantastic presentations from a few of our parents who work in STEM related careers. All of them were really interesting and we learnt lots about their jobs.

Autumn - Reception

Reception have been making observations of how the natural world around us changes in Autumn time

Materials- Reception 

In Reception class the children learn about science through the area of learning called "The Natural World." They have been learning about different materials as one of the children chose to make a magnet in the gluing area. As a result they have been investigating magnetic and non magnetic materials and have married this with their interest in role play weddings by exploring different fabric materials too using some fantastic scientific vocabulary such as opaque and iridescent. They then looked at solids and liquids through their learning on the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty. They looked at materials that could help keep Humpty solid should he fall off any walls again!
