Science at Goldington Green Academy
Our Early Years children follow the Early Learning Goals curriculum and learn through play opportunities both in their indoor and outdoor classrooms. The children are given daily opportunities to experiment with wide and varied practical resources that enhance their scientific vocabulary, awareness of their senses and the world around them.
Children from Year One to Year Six take part in exciting and inspiring weekly Science learning sessions. Our Science curriculum meets the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum and children’s independent learning activities are differentiated to ensure that all of our pupils are challenged and meet their full learning potential.
50% of our Science curriculum is practical based and investigation based (government recommended amount) and children make predictions, carry out, record and analyse the findings from their investigation (as age appropriate).
Our practical learning opportunities include finding out which rock is the most resilient, finding out why a hot air balloon floats in the sky, finding out which mixture makes the best bubbles, finding out the best material to make a cycle helmet and many, many more!
