Greenacres Primary Academy (South Pennine Academies)

Respect, Responsibility and Really Good Manners

Our Science Intent


Science is taught as a separate lesson but is linked to our themes where appropriate. We encourage our pupils to be curious about natural phenomena and to be excited by the process of understanding the world around them. Key scientific terminology will be introduced each lesson and knowledge will be built upon throughout the school. Pupils will be encouraged to work scientifically and will able to carry out simple tests and experiments using the equipment and to gather and record data. Whilst at Greenacres Primary Academy, children will learn about plants, animals including humans, materials, seasonal change, habitats, rocks, light, forces, states of matter, sound, electricity, earth and space and evolution and inheritance. Visits by specialists such as 'Zoo to You' alongside close links with local secondary schools will enhance the delivery of our science curriculum. We will also have dedicated science days throughout the year.
