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

British Science Week 2019
During British Science Week we carried out a whole school investigation. Our question was: 'Who is more accurate - boys or girls - at throwing a bean bag a distance of 5 metres into a hula hoop?'
Each class also carried out its own investigation. Here are a few photos of some of the investigations.
STEM Club is held every Monday after school where the children carry out various exciting experiments. Have a look at what they have been doing.
