Science

All students from Reception to Year 7 at Highbury Primary School access and use the fully equipped Science Room during weekly class lessons with a specialist science teacher. Science is also taught within classrooms covering all science understandings: Physics, Chemistry, Earth and Space, and Biology

Science focuses on developing students’ knowledge, skills, understanding and capacities in science through working cooperatively in teams through a process of Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate. At Highbury our science lessons develop student’s skills of working scientifically as they undertake investigations and communicate their understanding and scientific findings. Science at Highbury Primary engages our students to investigate, through interactive activities, in a fun and interactive environment.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in The Oliphant Science Awards and to be a member of the Environmental Forum. National Science Week is also celebrated with a special learning emphasis to suit the theme.
