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)
Science teaching at Studley Green aims to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.
At Studley Green, scientific enquiry skills are embedded in each topic the children study and these topics are revisited and developed throughout their time at school. It will develop the natural curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence.

The next British Science Week 2020 takes place between 6th – 15th March. There will be lots of science activities and learning taking place linked to the theme Our Diverse Planet. If you fancy trying something at home their are lots of ideas at:- https://www.britishscienceweek.org/
Thursday 12th March
Well done those Year 5's who went to John of Gaunt to participate in the science fair - your project and explanation to other children was great.
Science Club: Look what we have been learning about in science club.
Today we have made bath bombs: we used baking soda, citric acid, baby oil and an essential oil (orange, vanilla or lavender) The chemical reaction is a irreversible change as it can't go back to its original state. The reaction happens when you put the bath bomb in warm water.
Look at Metis, Pandora and Hydra's pages to see what they learnt when they visited Bristol Zoo at the beginning of term 3's topic Paws, Claws and Whiskers
Look at what Metis and Pandora have been finding out in Forest school. All about Autumn!
Have a read of our Newletter dated 13.12.2019 to find out why the Year 4s were science excited and to see the photos
"On Thursday morning Titan class walked to The John of Gaunt School to watch Tim Harrison’s Science Show. We were told all about different gases and chemicals and he did a demonstration using two balloons with different gases to see how they reacted. One balloon popped as normal and the other exploded with fire! He also did experiments with dry ice and we really enjoyed all of them. By, Emily, Josie & Milly"
TERM 1 (2019 - 2020)
The Space Dome has been in to help Metis, Pandora, Hydra, Callisto and Oberon with their learning on Space. Look on their pages to find out more...
National Science week starts today (8.3.2019) and runs all of next week. Look out for things that are happening in school this we linked to science and support your child's science understanding.
-Eggs arrive in Metis and Pandora
-A visit to Bath University for Callisto and Hydra
- Science Fair
and plenty of practical science in class
Term 3: Science club has started
Keep visiting to find out about all the fun science experiments and activities we have been carrying out.
Year 5 and 6 are departing early to visit - The Curious - Forensic Science Workshop. To find out more ask children in Callisto and Oberon and look out for pictures after Tuesday 8th January 2019
Evidence of some of the things we have done in previous years.
National Science Week
12th - 16th March 2018
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!"
Science Fayre 16th March
at John of Gaunt school
I would Like to say a very well done and what great ambassadors of Studley Green School the six Year Five pupils were when we took part in the Trowbridge Science Fayre.
Our exhibit linked to science in the work place was: Manufacturers of a company like Lush or Body Shop and the science behind Bath bombs.
Here are just a few of the wonderful comments we had from Year 7 and 8 students /parents and teachers:
<Brilliant exhibit! and you get to take a bath bomb home amazing.
<Impressive <great idea
<I wish we could do more <awesome!
<amazing idea <this was cool
<good explaining <I wish we could do more
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!
