Science

Curriculum Leaders: Dave Tickle and Ashley McGuire

Our Vision:

 

At the Oakridge Schools Federation we recognise the vital role that science plays in our everyday lives and helping to develop the world in which we live. We aim to teach science through the delivery of practical, engaging scientific investigations to inspire the children's natural curiosity and develop their love of enquiry. We will develop and foster their enthusiasm to question the world in which we live to enable them to purpose their own hypotheses and develop their own tests.

They will experience and investigate scientific phenomena, in a range of contexts, to ensure a continually evolving knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our children will be encouraged to:

  • Ask questions
  • Take risks
  • Make and learn from mistakes in a safe environment
  • Acquire and apply core skills which equip them for an ever-changing world

Year 1 made Fat Maggots to lure birds into our school. They observed how they moved as well as the habitat birds live in. Year 1 identified that birds need food to survive and they use their senses to find their food.

Year 1 have some visitors! The children will observe how the snails move and the habitat they live in. They will then go onto conducting an investigation to see if snails are herbivores, omnivores or carnivores.
