The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries is not ‘Eureka!’ but ‘that’s funny….’

Isaac Asimov

Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge. Because science links direct practical experience with ideas, it can engage learners at many levels.

Scientific method is about developing and evaluating explanations through experimental evidence and modelling.


During Science Week, we had lots of visitors who came to talk to us about their roles in science or engineering and some even 'wowed' us with experiments such as making elephant’s toothpaste and flames of various colours.


Each class then began to compile a list of questions they would like to investigate; Year 1 investigated how they could make a self-powered moon buggy and Year 4 investigated if weight and mass had an impact on the size of craters. It was a week filled with investigations, observations, research and “wows”.
