Welcome to our Science Page
The principal focus of science teaching is to enable pupils to experience and observe phenomena, looking more closely at the natural and humanly-constructed world around them. (National Curriculum 2014)
Every term we use our scientific skills to learn about another area of science. Take a look at your class Topic letter to find out what areas of science you are learning about at the moment.
National Science Week

15/3/2018 - Science Day and Fair
Congratulations to Grace, Taleah, Hayley, Anniemay and Henrietta for being great ambassadors when sharing their learning at John of Gaunt today. It was a packed day of learning. First they we engineers creating bridges from just paper, nuts, bolts and tape. Then we explored a science lab and used a bunsen burner to burn different metals. Finally we set up our science learning about investigating slime and talked and talked and talked.
Here are some of the comments from adults, parents and pupils from John of Gaunt.
"A fabulous investigation - great fun. Well done"
"Really good practical that was very well explained by the students"
"It was very fun to do!"

Metis and Pandora class had a wonderful learning experience at Weymouth Sea Life Centre. They learnt more about sea creatures and their habitats. They also saw lots of farm animals on the way there and back. Go look on Metis and Pandora pages for photos of their trip. It was great to hear so much scientific vocabulary being use. Well done!

Science week has arrived!
Studley Green pupils are all being Scientist this week and the weather is really helping. Science is all about exploring and finding out about the world around us and this year we are focusing on the school grounds and things that effect us daily. Here are just a few photos of what has been happening in class and the marvelous environment that we have. More to come over the coming days!
We have had a very productive afternoon today. Wild science club went out armed with gloves, litter pickers and bags and collected 3 bags of rubbish from the wild area. We also went pond dipping and found plenty of newts. We were very happy to find a pregnant newt as well. Can you spot her in the pictures below? She is browner and has an enlarged tummy!
This week in Wild science we found, cleaned and filled all the bird feeders. We went looking in the ponds and can you guess what we found? Look below
Signs of spring!
Wild Science club have found signs of spring this week (27.2.2017) while on our scavenger hunt in the wild area. We found daffodils, primroses, crocuses, snowdrops, snails, nests, worms, frogs and the first pond filling up with frogspawn.
