What does Science look like at Chilvers Coton?
Chilvers children love science! Best of all we like finding things out and testing our ideas. We are getting better at predicting what might happen and explaining why or how things have happened.
During science lessons at Chilvers we encourage our pupils to ask questions and recognise that they can be answered in different ways . We practise observing closely, using simple equipment, and performing simple tests. We learn how to identify and sort objects and materials through investigation and experimentation. Children develop a curiosity to find out about plants, animals, humans and all living things and record their findings in lots of different ways.
Science is a great way to make learning fun and relatable.
There are lots of science experiments that you can carry out at home, using things that you might find in your cupboards.
Have a go at completing some of these experiments at home - don't forget to take a picture and send it to your teacher on Class Dojo!
