Science Vocabulary

  • We teach science vocabulary in every science topic
  • We have created visual 'Key Word' sheets for each topic. These are displayed in the classrooms and in the children's books.
  • The key words for each lesson are displayed on the board and discussed. Children practice and learn how to spell the key words.

Child-led Science Investigations

  • Working with the University of Manchester, we have developed 'Fair Test Fatima', a simple resource for planning fair tests that allows children to lead their own practical science work.
  • Watch this short video to find out more.
