Year 6 Science Ambassadors

Sebastian, Isaac, Lavendar, Samuel

Here's what our science ambassadors have to say about science at Coxhoe Primary School:

"At Coxhoe, we really love science! Our teachers make the lessons really fun and we enjoy learning about lots of different things. We have lots of questions about how things work and science helps us to answer those questions. We think it is a really important subject as a good scientific knowledge  is needed for lots of different areas and jobs. We recently spoke to children across the school about science, and they had an excellent knowledge of what they were learning about! They were very enthusiastic about learning new things in science and finding answers to their questions and they were particularly enthusiastic about our scientific enquiries!

We look at a range of different topics in science. We look at things like:

· The theory of evolution

· Space

· Plants and animals

· Climate change

· The human body

And many more things.

We love Science at Coxhoe and are looking forward to making it even better!"

Curriculum Intent

It is our aim to help children understand that science is all around us.

By giving children the skills to question their surroundings and how we are all affected by our environment, we can develop our children into scientific thinkers.

Throughout their time at Coxhoe Primary School, children will develop the ability to investigate a wide variety of scientific topics, each year building on the investigation skills they have been taught.
