“A friendly, creative environment for learning together”


At Stannington we aim to stimulate and enthuse all our children so that they use their investigative and exploratory skills to discover new things!

To enable us to produce inquiring and enthusiastic scientists we present opportunities for the children to make observations, explore, investigate, problem solve and experiment. We develop useful knowledge, skills and attitudes about the world in which we live such as healthy eating, investigations, plants/growth, materials, forces, sound and minibeasts.

We deliver much of the science curriculum through our Forest School learning so that it is practical and relevant. Science is also a time for the children to be encouraged to work through whole class, group or individual investigations, designed to arouse the children’s natural curiosity.
