Science

 

 

Here at Lapworth CE Primary School we aim to establish a life long love of learning and science is the perfect way for children to do that! We aim to build upon children's natural curiosity and inspire them through engaging lessons and opportunities.

Science in our school is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, as well as using and applying process skills. Children are immersed in scientific vocabulary, which aids children’s knowledge and understanding not only of the topic they are studying, but of the world around them.


        

 

Curriculum

To support the teaching of mathematics at Lapworth C of E Primary School teachers use Plymouth Science. 


The sessions are designed around the National Curriculum statements for Knowledge, Working Scientifically and Scientific Enquiry.  Pre learning, from previous year groups and lessons in recapped and built upon drawing cross curricular links across modules.  One of the best things about Plymouth Science is that the lessons provide hands on learning enabling the children to learn through practical activities. It utilises a metacognitive approaches which includes mini quizzes, recapping and revisiting knowledge so that prior learning is embedded and not just forgotten. Plymouth science really promotes science capital, encouraging the children to think about science in the real world. 

 

To see how the application of learning is progressed year on year, please see the documents below:

British Science Week

As a school we participate in British Science Week each year as a way to further enhance the teaching and learning of Science. Science Week involves a range of hands on scientific skills and investigations to enthuse and inspire children.  

 

The theme for 2023 is ‘Connections’.

We had lots of fun making predictions, observing, measuring, investigating and learning!

Here are some of the activities we got up to.

Space Camp

In Year 5 children are given the opportunity to take part in Space Camp.  This is when the children come back to school on a Friday evening for a fun filled evening of space themed activities, ending with hot chocolate and a space themed film before sleeping in tents.

Space Camps can create incredible, inspirational adventures that are packed with awe and wonder moments, while developing scientific curiosity and creativity beyond the curriculum.

Learning without limits nurtured by Christian Values
