Science Vision

At Parkhill, our vision is to give every child a broad and balanced science curriculum which is enriched with real life science opportunities. Where children’s, curiosity and science questions are welcomed and children have the skills, and expertise to answer them.   Our goal is for every child, regardless of starting point, to develop the expertise to talk and approach tasks like a scientist. To understand how science has changed our lives and to have a global outlook on how science is vital to the world’s future prosperity.   

(Article 13 You have the right to find out things and share what you think with others.)


Through high quality teaching we will develop the essential characteristics of scientists:

  • Excellent scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
  • An understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • Equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future

Outdoor Learning Day 2024

The school was filled with a happy buzz of children exploring their school outdoor environment as they completed a wide range of activities during the day.  It all started with a maths trail, which saw children eagerly running happily to solve a range of mathematical questions.

“I had so much fun. The time went so fast. We managed to solve all twenty questions.” Fahima 6S

The Year 6 children continued the mathematical theme when they gathered natural materials to complete a mathematical Sudoku challenge.

Natural curiosity and creativity, inspired Year 4 children to work collaboratively to collect a range of natural objects and create this wonderful weaving. This creativity continued when the Year 3 children painted stones. Inspired by the Parkhill Garden, the children designed their stones in the images of mini-beasts and fruit and vegetables grown in the garden. They have made brilliant vegetable labels. I’m sure you agree!

Year 5 and Year 6, wanted to raise awareness of recycling and reusing our waste materials. They made planters from milk cartons, wind chimes from plant pots and streamers from plastic bottles. Brilliant and how creative!

Th day was a fabulous success and gave the children a chance to use a range of high performance learning skills and behaviours. We look forward to more outdoor activities.
