Science

At Spring Bank Primary we aim for all our pupils to develop scientific knowledge and understanding of age appropriate content through the three traditional areas of Science – biology, chemistry and physics.

Throughout school children learn about Science through science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. There are five types of scientific enquiry taught in school: observing over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying and grouping; fair testing and researching using secondary sources.

The school is fortunate in having close links with Leeds University. Children visit the University to take part in Science workshops and students visit school to teach science. For a number of years the school has offered a focus ‘Science and Nature Week’ in the Summer Term. In 2016 and 2017 the children put on a very successful Science Fair supported by parents.
