Science

‘Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of Science.’
Science National Curriculum. 

At Hall Green Infant School we love Science and provide our children with an exciting and practical science curriculum. We follow the National Curriculum in Key Stage 1 and children cover a wide range of topics including, plants, animals (including humans), seasonal changes, materials, and living things and their habitats. We immerse our children in these topics through knowledge and skills based learning and providing the children with opportunities to be an active part of practical scientific investigations.  We bring science to life for children and provide numerous opportunities including an annual whole school Science Week, external visits to places of interest in the local area and beyond. These opportunities help to inspire our children to pursue careers in scientific fields and to challenge gender stereotypes in STEM careers.

Science Curriculum Quick Overview

Here is a variety of some of our recorded KS1 science learning, showing a range of our scientific skills and knowledge.

What a pleasure it was for Year 1 to enhance their scientific learning with a visit to the National Space Centre in Leicester. Click on the class pages for more pictures of this learning.

Science Home Learning 2021

During the third Lockdown, children at Hall Green Infant School have worked incredibly hard on their science work at home. We have covered a variety of topics in KS1 including Plants and Everyday Materials. Our children have been busy carrying out experiments, making observations and asking their parents questions about the world around them. We are so proud of how hard you have all worked and have really enjoyed seeing the pictures of you being scientists at home. We hope you enjoy looking through the fantastic home learning that has been completed. 

The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch

 

Many of our children and staff took part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. We participated in a range of activities at home such as writing fact files about different types of birds, building bird feeders from junk modelling, and of course, watching birds in our gardens. As the weekend fell during the third lockdown, it was a great opportunity for us to get outside and observe nature. Have a look at the pictures below to see what we got up to over the weekend. 

British Science Week

In March, we hosted a whole school science week to coincide with British Science Week! The theme was 'Our Diverse Planet'. Each year group explored this theme in a variety of ways. KS1 had a fantastic week investigating the big question 'What equipment do scientists need in Antarctica?' Whilst EYFS explored the diversity of rivers and animal habitats.

Year 2 Food Chain Family Project

As part of our topic, 'Living Things and Their Habitats' the children in Year 2 took part in an exciting project all about food chains. At home, the children researched food chains and came up with creative ways to represent food chains. We took part in a fantastic presentation afternoon where Mrs Alyas came to judge our projects and select a winner from each class! She was very impressed with the hard work and creativity of all the children and their families who took part in the project. Well done Year 2!
