Science

Spectacular Science!

At Wheatfield Primary School we aim to stimulate a child’s curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do. We encourage the children to ask scientific questions, lead their own investigations and to start to appreciate the way in which science shapes the world around us. Our curriculum is organised into topics specific for each year group and allows the children to build on knowledge and skills so that learning shows clear progression as the children grow.

Wheatfield Primary School also take part in British Science week which is held every year and as a school we celebrate by holding a Science Fair competition where children partake in conducting a scientific experiment of their choosing. These projects are always very impressive and the rest of the school, including parents and carers, get the opportunity to visit the children's work and find out some interesting facts!
