At Grange Primary School, we are committed to giving all of our children (aged 2-11) the

opportunity to take part in and enjoy practical science activities within their lessons

and at after school clubs.

 

Science coordinators have, through discussions with teachers and

a resource audit, identified a key area of need: 'Animals including humans'.

This is a science topic from the national curriculum which is covered in every

year group. Subsequently, our science coordinators have worked with STEM

learning and accessed research from SCORE (Science Community Representing

Education) to identify resources needed to support the pupils when completing

practical work and to ensure that all children receive well-rounded,

inspirational science teaching in the ‘Animals including humans’ topic.

 

Science coordinators have, through parent/carer questionnaires

and pupil voice activities, identified that although children enjoy science in

school there is a real desire to participate in more practical activities. The purchase

of exciting resources will enable us to fulfil these wishes and provide

children with more opportunities to work scientifically within lessons and at

after school clubs.

 

An outline of the resources we intend to purchase if we obtain

the funding from VENATOR is attached as part of this application. This includes

the intended impact upon year groups and curriculum areas. As the science

coordinators are committed to up skilling teachers and children, guidelines as

to how to use and maintain the resources so that they have the maximum impact

on children's science education will be delivered in team meetings.
