Science

At Sandhurst Primary School we want our children to be naturally curious about the world around them. Our aim is for science at Sandhurst Primary School to be fun, engaging, of high quality and that is provides children with the foundations for understanding the world that they can take with them once they complete their primary education.

Our curriculum has been developed to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum and to foster a sense of wonder about natural phenomena. We are committed to providing a stimulating, engaging and challenging learning environment. Teachers are also encouraged to plan enrichment activities such as trips, workshops and visitors to enhance our children’s learning experience.

Throughout our school children are encouraged to develop and use a range of working scientifically skills in five areas: observing changes over time, noticing patterns, grouping and classifying things, finding things out through secondary sources of information and modelling. Scientific language is taught and built upon as topics are revisited in different year groups and across key stages.

The children were given a task to design a spaceship for National Space Week.

See the pictures below for some of the great ideas that we had.

Here are the winners of the competition….

Well done everyone!
