Science is a core subject in the National Curriculum, and is delivered in every class every week. This year the school has embarked on a Science Project called Polar Explorers. The project runs alongside the Polar Explorers mission involving 37 countries.
Science at Pebble Brook is underpinned by our core science principles:
These principles were written and made by the children of our school. They thought hard about what they wanted science to be like at Pebble Brook and discussed their ideas with each other and teachers. As teachers we use these principles to underpin everything we teach and how we teach it.
The National Curriculum sets the objectives which need to be covered within each unit. As a school we have linked our science as closely as we can to the topics we are learning. We believe that this means our children will have a ‘big picture’ view of science and how it influences the world around us. It also makes our learning more enjoyable!
We run an after school science club, where the children get to be in control. We start the club by generating ideas, questions or areas which the children are interested in, and we aim to complete / answer as many of these as possible throughout the term in a very practical way.
