SCIENCE

Science at Pinehurst is hands-on, engaging, and thought-provoking. Our curriculum provides a wide range of learning experiences for our pupils, under our ‘Achievement for All’ agenda and our 'Experience, Excel and Enjoy' motto.

You can follow our Science learning journeys via Twitter, using the hashtag: #PinehurstScience

Science teaching helps children to develop enquiring minds and equips them with key skills, so that they are increasingly able to research answers to their own questions.

Our Science curriculum is based on the principles that Science is good when it:

 - Is relevant and related to real life, current topics of interest, and means something to us;
 - Allows us to ask lots of questions and develop our vocabulary;
 - Lets us investigate and explore in a practical, hands on and experimental way;
 - Challenges our understanding and encourages us to think critically about our scientific ideas;
 - Encourages us to apply our knowledge, skills and understanding at home and at school;
 - Gives us opportunities to work with others to develop our collaborative working skills and;
 - Enables us to use appropriate, high quality resources and equipment.

SAFETY: Please do not try the experiments without an adult to supervise.

With adult supervision take some time to try out a mini experiment and record your findings in a creative way.

You could create a poster, a comic strip, a leaflet or record your findings as jottings.

As always, we love to see the work you do at home. Please share via Twitter or Class Dojo.
