Science & Outdoor Learning

Our aim for science at Parkside is to equip our learners with robust scientific skills that can be applied in real life situations.

It is important for any child to question and understand the world around them. In order to prepare our students in the best way possible, the curriculum at Parkside uses an innovative skills based approach based around the concept of scientific inquiry.

What do students learn at Parkside?

Science is taught using a spiral curriculum that goes across all three key stages, in which the core tenets of the National Curriculum are presented using hands on, practical approaches.

Why do students learn this?

Practical learning encourages the student to develop a variety of important skills such as hypothesising, pattern recognition, evaluating, and drawing conclusions which in turn can be applied laterally to many subjects. It is hoped that this intended knowledge and these experiences will inspire all pupils to be scientifically literate as they grow up, questioning the world around them and making links between different areas of learning.

What experiences do students have in science?

Students get to experience hands on, practical learning tasks in which they are able to experience the world around them from an analytical and scientific point of view.

Each lesson involves a challenge in which the students have the opportunity to extend, question and consolidate their learning.

Students are very engaged with the curriculum and make excellent progress in terms of skills and learning the National Curriculum.
