“ Science is the poetry of reality”
- Richard Dawkins
Our aim in Science is to foster a curiosity about the world we live in and to nurture an enthusiasm and love of the subject.
Beginning with the basics and slowly building to “working scientifically” in Key Stage Two, we ensure that our programme of study is in line with the new curriculum. Our Science lessons are based around hands-on investigative work in order to engage the children and stimulate their learning!
We have excellent resources on site and access to wonderful opportunities outside of school to inspire our pupils to become expert scientists!
We are lucky enough to have annual visits from the Life Education Mobile Classroom. These sessions are run by specially trained educators in a mobile classroom with the class teacher and support staff present.
The aim of these sessions is to provide children with vital information on healthy living. We equip our pupils with the transferable skills needed to make good choices in the future in a fun and memorable way!
Using stimulating and interactive techniques, our pupils are taught the fundamentals of:
- Healthy eating,
- Drugs and alcohol,
- Forming friendships
- Developing a sense of self-worth
Using puppetry, drama and interactive games, Life Education is an informative and entertaining opportunity not to be missed!
We cater for our budding scientists in Key Stage 2 with a weekly Science Club where we investigate and experiment with the different equipment available to us at the school! From forces and food chains to gases and growth, we experiment in any way we can, hoping to make the next big discovery!
Trips and Visits
We hold annual Science Evenings and make regular visits to the Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Benjamin Franklin House and The Centre of The Cell to educate our children on the history of Science.
We have strong links with Chelsea Academy where we get the chance to visit their well-equipped labs for interactive sessions and demonstrations in a stimulating setting- a great insight into secondary school Science!
We organise these extra curricular activities in order to make Science at Servite as hands on as possible.
