Reception & KS1: Imagine what it would be like to go to a hot tropical rainforest, a desert or even head up the North pole. Delight in the sights, sounds, smells and sensations of different environments, find out about the animals that live here and find out what we can do to help save the world!
KS2: An immersive show about our amazing planet Earth. Build food webs, see how animals are adapted to their environments and discuss deforestation and the greenhouse effect? See how the choices we make affect our environment both locally and globally.
We want to stimulate curiosity in science for all, regardless of age, gender, background or ability. Our science shows:
- Allow for questions to share interests and explore ideas
- Treat every child as unique, supporting personal development
- Promote observation, prediction and exploration
- Encourage imagination, creative and critical thinking
- Support and enhance the Curriculum across subject areas
