Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. Science links direct practical experience with ideas so it can engage learners at many levels. During the teaching of science an emphasis is placed on the teaching of scientific skills such as predicting, estimating, measuring, fair testing, hypothesising, and drawing conclusions.
Ark Byron has adopted a new approach to science teaching for Key Stage 1 pupils that emphasises practical experiments and investigation. We hold regular "deep learning" days for our Year 1 and Year 2 pupils when they focus on STEM (science, maths and technology) allowing time for exploration.
Where possible we make use of the Park to explore science further.
