Our Science programme is mapped over the whole school.
The intention is to ignite the imagination through play in KS2 and foster curiosity that leads to questioning and problem solving. Our stunning location enables us to link environmental Science with Forest school.
The journey continues in KS3 where there is a strong emphasis on investigation and observation skills through safe practical sessions in our laboratory.
Once pupils transition to KS4 all studies are accredited through OCR Entry level Science with the option to choose the 9-1 pathway for pupils in year 10.
Our Littlegreen pupils will naturally progress through the three disciplines, Biology, Chemistry and Physics all three disciplines embed Maths and English skills.
Science is an important topic, using varied learning styles the intention is to encourage pupils to understand the world around them with all its cultural diversity – and prepare for the transition to college courses in 14 – 16.

Lower school finished a series of STEM lessons with Lisa (a STEM ambassador) with making mini bots.
They started with a mini vibration motor, which they used to experiment attaching it to a small battery. They found out that when the blue wire touches the positive side and the red wire on the negative, the energy from the battery is transferred to the vibration motor.
They then attached the circuit to a tin cake cases and transformed them into brilliant mini bots with googley eyes.
"it was amazing, fun and I want more STEM lessons" Ronny M
Pupils thoroughly enjoyed an engaging STEM robot workshop!
Pupils and staff delved into coding with vibrant tiles and navigated cars. Additionally, they enjoyed playing snake and ladders using robots, harnessed the robots' capabilities to draw intricate 2D shapes, and even explored Chinese writing with robotic assistance.
Sarah Jones (Teacher & Trust Project Lead for STEM) said: "The pupils were fantastic and so engaged which is always a thrill to see this passion for STEM from the pupils."
