Science at Denfield Park 


At Denfield Park Primary School we want to prepare the children for an increasingly scientific and technological world. We want the science curriculum at Denfield to enable children to explore and discover the world around them, confidently, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. We want children to experience and observe phenomena that they wouldn’t normally be exposed to. To achieve this it involves exciting, well-resourced, practical hands-on experiences that encourages curiosity and questioning.


Our aim:

• develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics

• develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them

• are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future

Denfield enjoys celebrating science week every year. 

Last Science week we adopted 14 animals through the WWF. Each class researched the animal, habitat and threats to their animal's environment. All classes were paired up with another class to share their knowledge at the end of the week. There were art masterpieces, fact files, dances and powerpoint presentations about the animals.
