We love science at Amberley and embrace it as an opportunity to engage pupils in practical, experiential learning. Science is used to enhance creativity in our pupils and to help develop team and leadership skills. It provides opportunities to link with our eco-schools work on sustainability (we are proud owners of our own Wind Turbine and holders of three Green Flag Eco-School Awards.)
Science is used to contribute to PSHE by highlighting to our pupils their 'global citizen' rights and responsibilities as good stewards of our planet Earth.
We promote science fully within our STEM week and link with parents, local businesses and Universities to hold a STEM careers week in February each year. By doing this we hope to ignite sparks of interest in science/STEM careers in our pupils and help them see the road ahead into the 'world of work.'
We are proud of our 'Primary Science Quality Mark' Silver Award. Please look at the portfolio of photographs below to get a flavour of science in our school.
