As a science team we are developing our impact on learning across the school.
We have begun to do this by looking at long term planning for science and mapped out key topics which build on prior learning and ensure progression across the school.
We have also looked at daily planning for science across the school which enabled us to evaluate the coverage and quality of learning experiences.
Resources have been evaluated to ensure that the children have access to high quality equipment to enhance their learning.
Having attended the Portswood Teaching Alliance Twilight sessions we have brought improved science investigations back to the school. This was evidenced in Year 5 with an exciting investigation on heating and cooling.
We organised a successful science day for year 6 led by the trainees at Southampton University. This provided a rich, stimulating hands on experience for all children.
