At Park Road Academy Primary, we aim to develop inquisitive, systematic and confident learners.
Here at Park Road we believe that science should be an engaging journey, which provides the children with a vast array of opportunities to work scientifically. Our science curriculum teaches children the importance of science and scientific enquiry in order to understand the world around them.
We strive to provide all children with the opportunities to develop key skills with real world applications.
Teachers use the Learning Challenge Curriculum to guide their teaching allowing them to make strong links between other subjects such as English, Maths, Geography and History.
Each teacher carefully considers the progression of scientific skills the children are learning throughout their scientific journey in order to develop inquisitive learners with the ability to work systematically and apply their skills to the real world.
The theme of this year's science week was 'Growth'. Therefore, our goal at Park Road was to grow the children's awareness and love of science. The children were exposed to a range of scientific activities that developed a range of skills, learning some new scientific vocabulary and developing their experience when working scientifically. As you can see from the smiles on the children's faces it was a thoroughly enjoyable week that definitely promoted a love of science!
Some of our Key Stage 2 children have shared their thoughts about Science and our Science lessons in school. Have a look at their comments below....
