Science 

At Holy Trinity we have a broad and balanced curriculum, rich in knowledge and creativity, accessible for all. Our science teaching aims to give children a strong understanding of the world around them, whilst acquiring the specific skills and knowledge to help them think scientifically. Wherever possible, we intend to deliver lessons where children learn through varied scientific investigations.

 

Some of our topics which are studied in Key Stage One are revisited in further detail throughout Key Stage Two. This model allows children to build up on their prior knowledge which in turn increases enthusiasm for the topics, whilst embedding the information into their long term memory.

 

We want our pupils to be fluent with using a range of equipment and undertaking the steps of an experiment. This ensures that by Upper Key Stage Two, children have the independence and confidence when planning their own experiments and they are able to choose the best equipment to successfully carry out their experiments.

STEM Specific Investigations 

Need to challenge yourself in lots of ways at once? STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) investigations are perfect for this. You'll probably need  a parent to help you with these challenges - but learning is better together anyway!

If you manage to complete all the investigations please bring the Challenge form in to show Mrs Payne or Mrs Gillett

STEM CHALLENGES

 Year 5 took part in a Physics Olympics which involved competing against four other primary schools in a range of different scientific challenges. Check out the pictures below to see what we got up to!
