Here, you will find information about some of the science learning taking place at Harrington Hill as well as useful links with fun and easy activities you can carry out at home!
Ms Ergen – Science Leader
At Harrington Hill, our vision is to provide a science curriculum which inspires and encourages all children to be inquisitive about the world around them, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. We believe this is best achieved through exciting, practical experiences that encourage curiosity and questioning. We aim to provide children with opportunities to develop a range of skills that are useful across their learning, helping to prepare them for life beyond the classroom.
Congratulations to our science ambassadors this year:
Our fabulous scientists will be: keeping the rest of the school up to date with any science related changes at Harrington Hill; writing blogs on the latest science news; setting up science experiments (which they will present in assemblies) and will be in charge of arranging and taking care of science resources at school.
During the spring term, Year 5 took part in a science competition which enabled them to learn about different careers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Maths); children worked in teams to design and make a durable raft with limited resources before testing their creations.
A big well done to our winning team: Jack, Aaron, Esther, Amrit and Samir, who will be competing at the semi-finals at UBS Bank later this month!
The best science activities are often hands-on (and sometimes messy) and produce exciting (and sometimes unexpected) results. If you love science and want to have a go at some fun and easy experiments at home, click this link, choose an experiment and have a go!
