Science is all around us and plays an important part in all aspects of life today. Here at St John’s we feel that good scientific knowledge and understanding will prepare our children for adulthood.
Science Intent at Baxenden St John’s
At Baxenden St John’s Primary School, we provide an enriched Science curriculum with many opportunities for practical lessons. We believe that it is very important that children learn to test ideas out successfully and relate them to everyday situations.
Throughout each academic year, the children are exposed to a wide range of topics that support their natural curiosity for learning. . Our curriculum aims to broaden the children’s scientific view of, and respect for, the world around them, whilst promoting a love for enquiry and wanting to explore new things. We want our children to develop a love and curiosity for science that carries through into later life, instilling in them an awareness of how science is relevant in today’s society.
Science Fun At Home (Spring 2)
We were due to have a science week at school on week commencing Monday 30th March. As I don’t want you missing out on the fun, I have attached links to website where you can find some cool experiments that you can do at home. Remember to take photographs of your science fun and send them to email@example.com.
- The imagination tree- https://theimaginationtree.com/science-experiments-for-kids/ You could let your child browse through list of experiments and decide which of them they would let to try, remember to take photos!
- There are lots of experiments on this website which only require items that you may have in your kitchen cupboards. There are also youtube videos linked to some of the experiments.
