Welcome to Science at Alwoodley Primary School!



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!
