Our Greatwood Science Vision
Our shared vision for Science has been developed by the teaching staff and the children here at Greatwood.
Spring Term Science:
During the Spring Term we will be focussing on the following areas in Science. We will build on the Scientific skills that we have already acquired.
Educational visits and visitors are a key feature of our practical, hands on Science approach here at Greatwood.
We have had a weekly KS2 Gardening club where the children have planted trees, looked after our school garden, built bug hotels and have even designed their own vegetable patches.
Our Year 6 chicken monitors have done a fabulous job in feeding, cleaning and collecting eggs.
Nursery had a visit from the Vet.
Year 2 visited Keelham Farm shop as part of their 'farm to fork' topic. They also visited an apple orchard.
Year 4 visited Eureka in Halifax to learn about the digestive system where they took part in a 'chew to poo' workshop.
The whole school will be having a visit to Chester Zoo to learn more about animals, their habitats and life cycles.
Our Reception children will be visiting Hesketh farm.
