At Paddocks Primary School, we aim to inspire, engage and expose our children to all aspects of science by; promoting the experience of exploring and investigating scientific phenomena, in a range of contexts, to ensure a continually evolving knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We also encourage our children to develop their natural curiosity and love of learning through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) activities. These activities help to motivate our children and develop their creative thinking, moving them from pure acquisition of knowledge to the application of their own ideas in real life situations, using the information, skills and understanding they have learned throughout the curriculum. STEM activities are incorporated in Learning Themes across the curriculum and STEM stations are located around the school with a range of practical tasks that the children can engage with independently.
Year 4 had a brilliant afternoon learning about 'What's in our Lunchbox' and testing for starch in various foods.
