At Wisborough Green we are passionate about developing investigative and inquisitive minds. Science stimulates and excites children's curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. We use a hands-on, practical approach to fire up enthusiasm and develop independent thinking skills through investigations.
Science is also the opportunity to apply and develop maths and literacy skills. Children are taught to discriminate, classify, recognise relationships and select information from a variety of sources. They develop skills in hypothesising, testing and evaluating ideas, as well as communicating using scientific language, drawings, charts and tables.
One of the highlights of the school year is the Science fair, which is always held in Science week and led by our Year 5 and 6 children. Each year the children are given a different area to focus on which could be: scientific questioning, fair testing, collating and presenting results.
Please have a look at the gallery below, which shows some of the amazing experiments that the children put on for the Science fair.
