As part of our science curriculum we ensure that the children have a broad range of experiences that link to the content taught in each year group. This ensures that the children have the opportunity to apply knowledge taught to real life experience whilst making links and deepening understanding further.
Year 6 had a fantastic day out on a visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. This trip linked to their science topic 'Evolution and Inheritance'. They took part in a session with one of the Park's resident education officers who talked us through adaptation and evolution. During the session, the children learnt about Charles Darwin and his study on Galapagos Finches. The children learnt about how adaptations are passed down through genetics and had a go at creating our own animals using adaptations seen in nature.

Year 5 had a visit from the Space dome. This inflatable planetarium showed the children the universe as they had never seen it before. An expert walked the children through the galaxy. During this, year 5 watched film that explored the idea of life on other planets as well as current missions to space. The children were fascinated and had the opportunity to ask their questions to an expert!

Year 4 had a visitor doing their science topic 'sound'. The children put their knowledge to the test through a range of practical experiments and were fascinated to see their learning come to life. In the afternoon, they then used scrap materials to create their own musical instruments!
In Year 1, the children visited Nell Bank to consolidate their learning about the senses linking this knowledge to animals and how they use their senses to survive in their habitats.
