At Mitchell Brook, our Science curriculum promotes our vision with a strong focus placed on develop and extending children’s working scientifically skills through a Science context. We empower children to act, think and undertake learning as a scientist might to ensure that learning is purposeful and engaging.
To ensure that children have the best possible Science learning experience we ensure that across a school year the children will go on a Science linked educational visit, take part in regular practical based learning, use a wide range of resources we have on offer, take their learning outside of the classroom and undertake home learning projects.
Mitchell Brook has received accreditation for our Science teaching and learning in the form of a Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) award to a Gold standard. The award recognises a clear high expectation for effective Science teaching and learning across the school.
Science doesn't stop there; we have many fantastic opportunities on offer outside of the classroom also:
- Key Stage 1 and 2 Science club takes place weekly and involves the children taking part in a range of fun, interactive and engaging science experiments to continue the love of science
- Super Science club takes place once a term in the last week of each Science club session and we invite parents along to take part with their children and share in our Science learning.
- Science Team, each year we recruit a team of children to take on roles which include Science Technicians, Recycling Ambassadors and Energy Wardens. The team help to raise awareness across the school and with the local community
- Extra Science education visits take place to a range of different events including the Big Bang London, Overnight stay at the Science Museum and visiting local schools Science Fairs.
