Science

At Wickersley Partnership Trust (primary) we aim to ensure our Science curriculum is designed to sequence learning and embed the key skills that are required to develop curious students into competent designers, engineers, architects and chefs.

We believe that our Science curriculum prepares children for the rapidly changing world that we live in,Ā empoweringĀ the children in all areas of the subject so that they may aspire to a science based career choiceĀ Our ScienceĀ curriculum encourages pupils to look at the world around them, and begin to find answers to questions. Through practical enquiry and class work, we look to provide all pupils with a solid understanding of basic scientific principles, which will enthuse them to want to study Science further.

We cover all 3 aspects of Science; Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

It is vital that curriculum knowledge and skills are not learnt in isolation. We teach Science through the progression of skills and knowledge, both of which are planned in a sequential document and include in this, key lines of inquiry to develop links across the curriculum as well as to the bigger concepts that drive our curriculum intent, such as democracy and equality.

Farmer Time

Hazel Class are regularly linking with a farmer in Nottinghamshire through ā€˜Farmer Timeā€™. Farmer Time is all about harnessing the power of digital communications to inspire, engage and educate young people about the journey of food from farm to form. We have been matched with Farmer Joe!
Farmer Joe is an arable farmer in Nottinghamshire. We have been meeting with him virtually via Google meet and he has shown us around some areas of his farm, taught us a little about the crops that he grows, and introduced us to his farm dog. The children are really enjoying meeting with Farmer Joe and were very excited during our Geography lesson this week when they could find not only the county they live in, but also the county of Nottinghamshire where Farmer Joe lives.
Farmer Joe has agreed to send us some seeds so we can have a go at planting and growing some of the crops he grows on his farm. We are looking forward to receiving them through the post. To find out more about Farmer Time follow this link:Ā https://leaf.eco/farmertime/home
