Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.

Stephen Hawking, 1942-2018

Theoretical Physicist & Cosmologist

A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. National Curriculum for Science, purpose of study

Steam day at Delaunay class

year 2 had an amazing time celebrating British Science week in our annual STEAM afternoon. Pupils were allowed to go around to other classes to join in various STEAM activities. It was incredible to see pupils join up with their friends, brothers and sisters to take...


For my activity (Miss Bogue) we made fruit volcanoes! It was so popular we used up all our fruit! After this, our next activity was to make paper craft! Lots of us made tall towers. Today we had a great day with STEAM DAY. Here are some of our pupil's reflections on...

What will dissolve in a liquid?

What will dissolve in a liquid?

We have been exploring more about materials and their properties in our science lessons again this week. Kahlo Class were curious to know more about dissolving. They wanted to find out which everyday substances were soluble (dissolve in a liquid) or insoluble (will...

Materials and their properties

In Kahlo Class this term, we are learning about materials and their properties in our science lessons. We started the topic by investigating the properties that different materials have. The class knew lots of materials from their prior science learning (glass,...
