At Cranbrook Primary School, Science lessons provide the perfect opportunity to stimulate and excite pupils’ curiosity and interest in the world. Through practical exploration, children develop their understanding and knowledge of 'how', 'why', and 'what' happens in science investigations. At Cranbrook Primary School, we encourage pupils to ask questions and discuss scientific issues that may affect their own lives. We help pupils to make sense of an ever-changing world. Scientific learning is not constricted to the classroom, at Cranbrook Primary School we encourage scientific learning and development wherever possible. Some of our extra-curricular activities include:
Mad Science clubs bring children the fun, the amazement and the wonder of all things science. At Cranbrook Primary School we have a weekly after school club that transform laboratory science into fun, interactive learning experiences for kids (please enquire at the front office).
A hands-on approach to teaching science is adopted throughout the school. These activities develop the children’s scientific skills of enquiry, observation, locating sources of information, selecting appropriate equipment and using it safely, measuring and checking results, making comparisons and communicating results and findings. Cross-curricular lessons are also taught on a regular basis, making effective links with the other curriculum areas such as maths, literacy and computing.
