ICT and Computing
We use a variety of teaching and learning styles in Science lessons. Our principal aim is to develop children’s knowledge, skills, and understanding. Sometimes we do this through whole-class teaching, while at other times we engage the children in an enquiry-based research activity. We encourage the children to ask, as well as answer, scientific questions. They have the opportunity to use a variety of data, such as statistics, graphs, pictures, and photographs. They use ICT in science lessons where it enhances their learning. Wherever possible, we involve the pupils in ‘real’ scientific activities, for example, researching a local environmental problem or carrying out a practical experiment and analysing the results.
We are working with the Worcestershire Biological Record Department on a Wildlife in Suckley Project, using our superb Wildlife Zone which was funded by Tesco Bags for Life Scheme.
