Shared Vison for Science
To plan and deliver a science curriculum that inspires and encourages our children to be inquisitive about the world.
At Street Lane Primary, we want to nurture our children’s curiosity to enable them to develop skills that are useful across learning.
We aim to put scientific enquiry at the heart of our school science curriculum.
Principles of Science
Good science is when …
- We feel safe to take scientific risks.
- Our lessons are relevant and inspiring.
- We are given a range of ways to explore science.
- Our teachers spark our curiosity and let us explore further.
Science lessons cover the 5 scientific enquiries. In key stage 2, children have been taught to discuss, identify and record in their science books the enquiry type/s covered each lesson.
Science Learning and Events
British Science Week (connections)- March 2023
Our whole school theme was 'What influence have women in science had on life today?'. Each class explored the work of a different female scientist and carry out research and practical work linked to their class scientist' We also enjoyed a visit from a real life geologist in our whole school assembly.
British Science Week for the Puffins
Puffins looked at Florence Nightingale and the impact she had on people during the Crimean War. The children learnt about tooth decay and the importance of looking after our teeth. The Puffins carried out an egg tooth decay experiment using eggs and different liquids (coke, vinegar, water, tea and coffee).
Making wind socks- September 2022
In Puffin class we were learning about seasonal changes. We made wind socks and are carrying out an observation over time scientific enquiry to record the wind on the Beaufort scale each week over the term.
Welcome to our newly hatched chicks! March 2022
Reception & Key stage Forces- January 2022
In Reception and Key Stage 1, we have been having lots of fun in our forces topic this term. Take a look at our investigation where we investigated the effect of moving jelly cubes different surfaces, including oil.
Stomp Rocket POP Task
We completed our pop task today. This enabled us to discuss the forces that we knew we were applying to the bottle and how this caused the air to force the rocket into the sky. We also used our recent learning on how to ask questions, make observations and think Scientifically as we wrote about our investigation and drew a diagram. Great work everyone!
Year 3/4 Exploring electric circuits- January 2022
In year 3 and 4 this term, we are learning about electricity in science. We were given different components and asked to work out how to make a bulb light. Then, we were asked to investigate how to make a bulb brighter. We also learnt how to draw a series circuit with a key to show the correct symbols for each component.
Key stage 2 Live Lessons for World Science Day- November 2021
Key stage 2 enjoyed learning about the coral reef in our first live lesson with EDU Encounter. We cant wait for our next live lesson for British Science Week in March 2022!
Planetarium for Reception and Key Stage 1- May 2021
We all had a wonderful morning learning about space in the planetarium! This was a great way to end our current space topic.
The pictures are a little unclear because it was so dark inside the dome.
I liked it when we looked at the constellations. Lottie Year 2
It was fun when we spotted the bear when looking at the constellations. Max Year 2
My favourite part was when we saw the robot on Mars! Riley Year 1
