Welcome to Science at Alwoodley Primary School!
THE ALWOODLEY SCIENCE VISION:
At Alwoodley we believe Science should inspire, enthuse and enable children to find out about the world around them and how it works.
Science is the study of nature and how things work, the reasons behind every-day things. It’s about making strange, mysterious, and complicated things become things we understand. It is about measuring and testing things, and trying to find rules about how things work by testing them fairly. Working scientifically helps develop critical thinking skills, and has lots of links to other subjects, especially Maths and Design Technology. At Alwoodley we try to make Science lessons as practical and enjoyable as possible - we have lots of children and teachers who love Science!
Alwoodley Primary has recently been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark for excellent provision of Science across school. The children and staff have worked very hard to achieve this award. Please find below a short film about PSQM.
MAKE YOUR OWN WILDLIFE SANCTUARY!

Make sure that you get an adult to look at the instructions with you before you start.
