Science at Nether Green

Science is a practical subject and the best way to learn science is through a “hands-on” experience. Practical work will be consolidated through discussion, written work and applying learning to new situations.

At Nether Green we aim to develop children’s scientific knowledge, teach them scientific skills and engender their natural curiosity. This includes making provision for children with special educational needs and those that are gifted and talented within the subject.

Where possible, scientific learning will be taught in the context of the class topic and will enable children to apply their scientific knowledge and skills for a purpose.

This year, our Science Ambassadors ran a science club for our Y3 children.

The Y6 Science ambassadors have started a Y3 Science Club this half term. Here they are with their catapults.

Our school has gained the Primary Science Quality Mark bronze award. The Primary Science Quality Mark is an award scheme to develop and celebrate the quality of science teaching and learning in primary schools.

 

 

As part of their 'Space' topic, the Y5s had a visit from Wonderdome, a mobile planetarium.

Dr Cartwright, a lecturer in astrophysics at Sheffield University, came to talk to the Y5s about the Solar System.

Mrs Noble, who runs the START club, worked with Y5 in their Space topic, bringing art into Science.

Here are some photographs of science being carried out around school.
