Science at Wheatfields Junior School is an exciting and amazing experience for our children. We take a hands-on, practical approach with the children undertaking regular science investigations. Child-led enquiry is embedded across our practice to encourage children’s questioning and thinking. Each term includes at least one trip or visit to support the topic the children will be learning. It is a journey the children will build on throughout their school career and will prepare them for secondary school and beyond. Science is a core subject in the National Curriculum, along with maths, English and computing. Children talk with enthusiasm about the experiences and skills they have been developing in science throughout their time at Wheatfields.
Primary Science Quality MarkTo highlight the priority that the school places on science and to continue to strengthen our science provision, Wheatfields are now working towards the Primary Science Quality Mark. We can’t wait to work on this and celebrate our learning and successes! http://www.psqm.org.uk/
