At Valley Invicta Primary School at East Borough, a coherently planned and well-sequenced programme of study develops knowledge of concepts and subject-specific vocabulary; delivering the full National Curriculum. We provide children with the foundations for understanding the world through biology, chemistry and physics. The well thought through pedagogy ensures that pupils know more and remember more.
Pupils at East Borough are taught the methods, processes and uses of science as it continually evolves and shapes our lives. We support pupils to develop a deeper understanding by applying the skills and knowledge learnt to real life contexts. Through our ambitious curriculum, pupils are aware of how Science could play a part in their future.
At East Borough, the curriculum is designed to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity, and to ask questions about the world around them. We teach children to understand scientific concepts, explain, predict and analyse outcomes and connect their findings to the real world. This provides them with the knowledge, skills and understanding to build their cultural capital to succeed in life.
"It is an amazing achievement and we are so proud of the work and effort everyone has put into raising the standard of teaching and learning of science across the school. We have learnt so much through the PSQM process. We’re looking forward to continuing our journey to improving the teaching and learning of science in the school and bringing even more exciting science learning to our children."
Welcome to the East Borough Primary School Science page! Here you will find photos and information about the Science teaching and learning around our school. Science is a subject we really enjoy at East Borough!
We are lucky enough to have Vinters Valley Nature Reserve on our doorstep and we make the most of this; our children can experience nature and changes in the seasons at first hand. We also have our own Forest School which every year group takes advantage of for Science. East Borough has close links to Invicta Grammar School and our children are fortunate enough to visit their laboratories and experience secondary Science and all of the facilities and equipment which they have to offer.
