"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 follow the Kent Science Scheme which ensures that we cover all National Curriculum objectives and that our Science skills progress throughout the year groups. Please click here to view our overview of subjects covered.
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.
In Term 2 we ran a Science Club after school on Tuesdays. The children enjoyed participating in many experiments: -
Week 1 - In our first week of Science club we were tasked with the very important job of creating a parachute for some precious cargo ( an egg!). We worked in partners to create the ‘perfect parachute’. Lots of discussions took place about the size of the parachute and the type of material we should use. We then put on our lab coats to go outside and test what we had made. Only one partnership was successful…well done Oliver and Jessica!
Week 2 - This week we used a chemical reaction to launch rockets. We tested out using different amounts of water to see if this would make our rocket go higher. Again, we put our lab coats on to go outside and test it. We had lots of fun!
