William Bellamy Primary School We learn... We grow... Together

Science

At William Bellamy Primary School pupils have a minimum of 1 afternoon

of science learning a week with further opportunities to apply their scientific knowledge and skills in their creative curriculum topic time and out of class workshops/visits throughout the year.

 

We work in partnership with Local Authority advisors to ensure that we are offering our pupils the best opportunities to develop their scientific understanding.  The school uses the Collins Scheme of Work to support planning.

 

Below is an overview of science topics taught.

On Tuesday the 10th January 2017 we were visited by Lava Lamp Lucy. She came in to tell us all about a new after school Science Club, called Mad Science, that will be starting at William Bellamy! Lucy showed us some really exciting experiments which really amazed us!

The club will be starting on Wednesday 25th January for 8 weeks (except half term and Science week). To register and pay for the club we must use the website link on the registration form that will be given out week beginning Monday 16th January.

For more information about the after school club you can use this link: http://www.madscience.org/after-school-programs.aspx

 

Science is a really important part of our curriculum and we want to make Science learning at William Bellamy really exciting!

As part of Year One's topic "Animals including humans" the children met a tortoise and a dog. The children observed the two animals and discussed their similarities and differences.
