Science

At Whyteleafe we recognise the importance of high quality science teaching and learning. Our pupils are given the opportunity to learn about many aspects of science, including forces, materials, electricity and the wonders of the natural world. Additionally, children at Whyteleafe are able to develop their scientific enquiry skills and learn how these can be used to answer questions in science.

We believe that children learn best when they are able to explore for themselves and strive to ensure that all children are given the opportunity to plan and carry out their own investigations.

Each year we advertise the role of ‘Science Leaders’ to our year 5 classes and after an interview process we select children to become Science Leaders for the year. Their role is to support the Science Leader organise and run key events throughout the year such as Science Day and science busking. Additionally, they run a science club for younger pupils. We believe this opportunity allows children to share their love and understanding of science as well as allow them to develop their leadership skills.

Each year we also run a Science Fair where children from year 1 to year 6 are invited to create a science fair project with the aim to become the Whyteleafe Scientist of the Year for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. The winners and runners up are then invited to the GLF Science Fair Grand Final which is a celebration of science across all the GLF schools. At this event the children are able to see other projects in the final and also are able to explore stalls exhibiting exciting science activities. At the end of the day an overall winner is crowned GLF Scientist of the year.
