Science

To develop children's scientific knowledge, enquiry skills and understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science, for now and the future. 

Empiri Box

Porteous (y3/4) and Borton (y5/6) engage in 'Empiri Box' for their science learning. This scheme is practical and brings real science into the classrooms for children to learn in an engaging, hands-on manner. Each term, as well as the scientific knowledge, children focus on applying their scientific enquiry skills of: Planning a Scientific Investigation, Presenting and Analysing Data and Evaluating a Scientific Investigation.
