Subject Leader: Miss J. Wright

We live in an increasingly scientific and technological age where children need to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to prepare them for life in the 21st century. We, at Ireleth St Peter's Primary School believe that the teaching of science develops in children an interest and curiosity about the world in which they live, and fosters in them a respect for the environment.

We aim that all pupils:
· Are introduced to the language and vocabulary of science
· Develop practical skills and their ability to make accurate and appropriate measurements
· Develop enjoyment and interest in science and an appreciation of its contribution to all aspects of everyday life
· Build on their curiosity and sense of awe of the natural world
· Use a planned range of investigations and practical activities to allow them a greater
· Understanding of the concepts and knowledge of science

In Science, the children are taught by Key Stage, streamed to match learning and outcome.

Super Scientist Award

This year, we have introduced a new award Super Scientist Award that is handed out at the end of each term. This award celebrates those children who work hard in all areas of Science, those that have enquiring minds both in and out of school and those who show a fasination for the world around them.
The award has so far been given out for children who have built incredible lego engineering projects, brought the outside world into the classroom in interesting ways and worked incredibly hard in classroom investigations.


British Science Week

Every year, we celebrate British Science Week by immersing ourselves in scientific investigations, experiments and opportunities to learn new skills. 

In 2024, the theme was Time which gave us lots of fascinating avenues to explore. 

ISP took part in the British Science Week nationwide poster competition. A winner was chosen from each class before their entries were sent off.

All of our classes participated in lots of scientific investigations. Take a look...
