Science at Broomgrove Infant School stimulates and excites children’s curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them, and the environment in which they live. Here at Broomgrove our aim is to teach science in a practical fashion, encouraging the children to link practical experience with ideas. It develops children’s observational, investigative and communication skills through first-hand experience and secondary sources such as books and ICT.
Broomgrove Infants enjoyed a day full of investigations and exploration as part of National Science Week. We were visited by Professor Whizzy, who wowed us all with a whole school assembly, before running individual class workshops. We were also lucky enough to be visited by a Marine Biologist, who told us all about her job. During the day the children completed lots more fun and exciting activities!
The children in Reception enjoyed pond dipping to find some tadpole for their class. The children found all sorts of pondlife, including lots of snails and newts. They are very excited to watch the tadpole grow, and have been learning about the lifecycle of a frog back in class.
