Science Intent

Science Whole School Coverage

What is Science? Let's find out what our children say....


'Science is explosions and experiments, I’ve enjoyed learning about food groups and plants. Science can help me with art because if I can see a plant then I can sketch what I see'. (Year 1 pupil)


'Science is experiments, habitats, scientists can make potions and investigate animals that are close to being extinct. I like building habitats, food chains, producers and consumers'. (Year 2 pupil) 


'Science is rocks, scientists and experiments'. (Year 3 pupil)


'Science is facts about the world and I love experimenting. My favourites are making elephant toothpaste and finding out how our digestive system works'. (Year 4 pupil)


'Science is Space. We have learned a mnemonic to help us remember the order of the planets and we have made satellites. We know about Aristotle'. (Year 5 pupil)

'Science is really cool; we do lots of fun experiments using lightbulbs and motors. I like writing about our experiments and showing what we have learned'. (Year 6 pupil)

Promoting careers in Science

It is vital that children understand how the skills they are taught at Collingwood will assist them in being successful in their later life and careers. At Collingwood, we aim to enable children to have a working knowledge of a variety of science skills to help them become: budding biologists, investigators, researchers, chemists, engineers and many more careers! We aim to ensure Collingwood children will be successful in whichever path they choose.
