Lydgate Infant School


Science at Riversdale is all about hands on learning, enabling children to discover science for themselves. Our philosophy is ‘learn by doing’ and ‘if it’s fun, it will be remembered.’ The children will be given opportunities for investigation and enquiry both inside and outside the classroom. Science lessons are interactive and meaningful developing an ability to think, investigate and evaluate.

Our Science curriculum is enhanced by an annual Science Week (11th to the 15th of March 2019) in which pupils throughout the school are given the additional experience of taking part in workshops hosted by visiting specialists or undertaking investigations and experiments led by members of the wider community. The theme for 2019 is Journeys. We are going to be creative in the interpretation of this theme and be making lots of cross curricular links too. Some of the topics we will be covering during Science week are:

  • Journeys and travel
  • Journeys of objects (making of objects and their lifecycles)
  • Journeys and life cycles (people, plants, animals)
  • Journeys through time (landscapes and historical change)
  • Journeys of people (leading to sharing of culture, ideas, stories)
