'A church school community aspiring for all to live life to the full'
Our School Vision for Science
At Holy Trinity Science is based around these essential enquiry skills in order to develop children’s knowledge, understanding and skills. Children are taught to identify questions that can and cannot be investigated.
Throughout the year we run weekly Science Clubs. These are held after school with Mrs Hewson and Mrs Pilkinson, or as a lunch club run by the Science Ambassadors with the Reception children.
Children learn about Science through 'hands on' fun experiments. We have learnt to make slime, lava lamps, paper bangers, skittle rainbows and learnt about life cycles.
Science Ambassadors have an important role at Holy Trinity in raising the profile of Science, engaging students (and staff!) in extra-curricular science activities across the school and home community, supporting teachers in lessons, sharing their enthusiasm for Science and getting the whole school buzzing about Science!
Our Science Ambassadors run our Science Bugs Club with the Reception children and help to plan exciting Science activities. They also help teachers organise Science resources in lessons and feedback to the School Science Leader about their learning in lessons. Other roles include organising our annual Great Bug Hunt and form the judging panel on the
Royal Society Young People's Book Prize.
The Year 1 and Year 6 children worked together to take part in the Big Bug Hunt 2019.
They used their scientific skills of observing, recording and asking questions to find as many bugs as possible in our school grounds. The children chose their own ways of recording their findings. We then went into the classroom and compared our findings.
The children had a fantastic day!
