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' Award 2019. Please look at the portfolio of photographs below to get a flavour of science in our school.
In the Autumn term, we welcomed this year's cohort of trainee teachers from North Tyneside's SCITT program.
They enjoyed an informative presentation about the Science at Amberley, our work around our eco values and they also enjoyed lesson observations in the EYFS, KS1 and KS2. The trainee teachers also had the opportunity to enjoy some 'hands on' science experiments with Mrs Nichols and Miss Morrison in the afternoon.
We received some lovely feedback from the day and we wish the trainees the best of luck with their careers in teaching.
