In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
New International Version
At Northaw, the teaching and learning of science is reinforced by an appreciation for the role of God in creation and the universe. The quality and variety of language that pupils hear and speak are key factors in developing their scientific vocabulary and articulating scientific concepts clearly and precisely. Practical activities form part of a wider instructional sequence that gives pupils time to connect theory to observation. Our extensive grounds, including greenhouses, and rural setting provide invaluable opportunities for a hands-on approach to science. We participate in British Science Week – a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. Science is led by a teaching assistant with a degree in the subject. Ofsted’s research review series has informed our practice in this area.
