Science club inspires future scientists to discover more about the world around them. We use observation skills, like the famous scientist Faraday, to see what happens when a candle melts. An easy investigation to do at home!
RAF competition to design a new plane. And throwing paper aeroplanes to learn about flight!
It’s that time again! The first STEM day of the year presents an exciting and festive challenge for our learners – watch the video (made by our science ambassadors) to see the task!
Science Vision Article 29 Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. “Science is so fun at Parkhill Junior, I love learning through experiments!” Aiman, Parkhill Junior Pupil. The vision for science at Parkhill Junior: promote curiosity and enquiry. We want children to be fully engaged and fully challenged through a range of hands-on learning opportunities in a range of exciting investigations; as well as the use of combined reading and researching to support the children in discovering new knowledge for themselves. Children should ask “what if?” and “how does this work?” questions to further their own learning. (Article 12: Every child has the right to have a say.) We want science at Parkhill Junior to inspire children to have a sense of wonder and awe of the world around them, realising that science is everywhere.
