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.


Science Trips:

Educational visits and visitors are a key feature of our practical, hands on Science approach here at Greatwood.


Autumn Term:

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.


Spring Term:

The whole school will be having a visit to Chester Zoo to learn more about animals, their habitats and life cycles.


Summer Term:

Our Reception children will be visiting Hesketh farm.
