Through the teaching of science at Willow Lane, we aim to inspire curiosity and equip our children with the scientific knowledge needed for them to better understand the world around them. We ‘teach to the heart’ by creating rich opportunities for our children to work scientifically and to explore, experience and question natural phenomenon so that they gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of scientific ideas. At Willow Lane, you can see our children acting out the movements of stars, planets and moons in our solar system; making weather stations to record and investigate patterns in the seasons; and identifying and classifying the incredible variety of life, both in our school grounds and further afield. Our children develop the aspirations, knowledge and skills to thrive and become tomorrow’s scientists.
