FreshSteps aims to ‘enthuse’ our pupils and open their minds to the breadth and depth of scientific learning. Whether pupils follow a scientific path or not, learning about Science and its huge influence on our daily lives will be important for their future. The application of scientific ideas and an appreciation of their impact on society are fundamental to our environment and in today's workforce and global markets.
We aim to encourage all of our pupils to become independent learners in readiness for their future. Lessons include both theoretical and practical work that provides our pupils with the opportunity to develop their knowledge and gives them the chance to apply their ideas, which will improve their ability to think and make deductions.
In order to further support for our pupils, we have opportunities to experience Science outside the classroom. In the past we have organised short trips to museums, the zoo and other wildlife parks. We have had animal holding sessions and egg-hatching experiences.
FreshSteps has recently invested in brand new scientific workstations and equipment for our Science classroom.
