The Subject Leader for science is Mrs. Raynor
Science is one of the core subjects in the National Curriculum, along with Maths and Literacy. At Underwood we make our Science teaching as creative and interactive as we can. Through Science the pupils learn a lot about themselves and about the world around them.
Throughout the school the children develop their skills in scientific enquiry to enable them to find out things for themselves and think creatively. Sometimes this involves practical investigations or using sources to find information.
We teach all our Science in a cross-curricular way. For example, Science might support the Literacy or Maths teaching and vice versa.
Here are some examples of our children learning Science.
In Class R the children have been learning all about themselves. They have made life size collages and labeled them to show the parts of their bodies.
Class 2 has been learning about minibeasts. They found lots of minibeasts outside and looked at them using lenses. They learnt about the environment they lived in and their habitats. The children then wrote poems all about the creatures they found.
The children in Class 3 have been learning about teeth and eating healthily. They had a visit from the school nurses and a puppet called Flossy. Flossy helped them understand about brushing their teeth properly.
Class 5 have been learning about solids, liquids and gases. They went outside to make themselves into particles in different states. They had a lot of fun and learnt about how the particles could move around.
Have a look at the photos below. They are some examples of Science at Underwood School.
