At Thorpe Acre Junior School, we aim to make science as interactive as possible, by encouraging the children to independently solve questions which enable them to explore the world around them. We want our children to have the confidence to use a wide range of practical skills so they can become more independent when planning, carrying out and writing up scientific investigations. They will do this in a variety of contexts and by using a range of written and verbal methods. During our science lessons, we encourage the children to appreciate how science affects our daily lives and helps us to understand our world, by ensuring we cover topics which cover the scientific areas of biology, chemistry and physics.
In Autumn 2018, thanks to the hard work and dedication of both the children and staff, our school was awarded the Silver Primary Science Quality Mark. Everyone at Thorpe Acre Juniors feels very proud of this excellent achievement.
