Wellfield Methodist and Anglican Church School


Science at Wellfield



At Wellfield Church School we want our children to be naturally curious about the world around them. Our curriculum has been developed to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum and to foster a sense of wonder about natural phenomena. We are committed to providing a stimulating, engaging and challenging learning environment in order to ignite a love of learning. Throughout our school children are encouraged to develop and use a range of scientific working skills including questioning, researching and observing. We will promote and celebrate these skills to develop self-confidence and independent learning with opportunities to explore their own curiosity. We want our children to have a broad vocabulary. Scientific language is to be taught and built upon as topics are revisited in different year groups and across key stages. We intend to provide all children regardless of ethnic origin, gender, class, aptitude or disability with a broad and balanced science curriculum. 


The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:  


  • 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.  

Science Selfie Competition

Welcome to British Science Week 2024!


Did you know that you're doing science right now? Are you using your lungs to breathe, your ears to listen or your eyes to read this post?


We challenge you to find some everyday examples of science for our Wellfield Science Selfie competition. All you have to do is take a photo of yourself with something scientific: plants (growth), cooking (heating and cooling), exercise (skeleton and muscles) etc. and include a caption stating 'This is science because...'


Please pass your entries to your class teacher by Friday 22nd March to be in with a chance to win a super science prize!


Careers in Science

This week we have had a visit from farm vet Catherine (Stanley House Vets) to talk to us about careers in science. She came fresh from a sheep cesarean and told us all about how science can lead to some very interesting future careers. 

Science Workshop

This year, British Science week is all about time. Today, we have celebrated this by exploring how science can tell us about life long ago: the dinosaurs. 


We have all enjoyed being palaeontologists; exploring the fossils and identifying the creatures they came from.
