KS1/2 Science - Wowing the Parents with Practical Science

Description

A look at the ideas and initiatives which helped Monteney Primary School gain specialist science status.

One successful idea was enlisting parents to help in science lessons. As well as allowing the children to show off their learning, it includes the parents in school life and helps them gain a greater appreciation of their child's abilities.

The school also introduced 'Wow Workshops', which focus on scientific enquiries and the skills needed to conduct them. The workshops have different themes, such as 'Amazing Animals'.

The school places a strong emphasis on cross-curricular science links to literacy, music, art, drama, numeracy and D&T, meaning science lessons can involve writing science songs, making rockets, role-playing and baking.

As a result, the staff at Monteney can see a real difference in their pupils' enthusiasm for science.
