Science at Hormead
Science is taught explicitly through a weekly session. The emphasis in Science at Hormead is not solely on knowledge; the development of ways children may investigate and solve problems scientifically; predicting, using results and data from tests, drawing conclusions and making links across themes is a priority.
We make children aware of environmental issues and encourage them to make their school more environmentally friendly, tackling areas such as energy saving, recycling and wildlife habitats. We even have a team of Eco-council representatives who run checks around the school- ensuring children and teachers are being environmentally responsible.
Our Science learning is enhanced further through enrichment week and science days.
