Bishop MonktonC of E Primary School



To ensure that our children have secure science skills and understanding we teach science as a discrete subject. Within science the children use their core maths and literacy skills to help them ask questions, record observations and draw conclusions. Children experience a variety of practical activities using an increasing amount of equipment and recording methods to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding.

Outdoor learning in Science. We like to get outdoors as much as possible in our Science lesson. Here are some photos of the year 2 and 3 children exploring and building habitats in our woodland area.

Owls Class enjoyed their school trip to Harlow Carr Gardens. While we were there, we explored different habitats and collected evidence to show what the habitats were like and what lived there. We also looked at lots of different types of plants and investigated similarities and differences between different plants. We especially liked the edible plants in the vegetable garden and had a go at sketching our favourites.
