Science

We believe that Science is a vital part of everyday life and teaching it through fascinating and practical approaches can inspire children. We strive to develop a sense of excitement, passion and curiosity about natural phenomena.

Our curriculum enhances the children’s scientific understanding and knowledge both independently and collaboratively. Our aim is to encourage the children to be inquisitive in Science and predict, explore and explain their own findings.

‘The important thing is to never stop questioning’ ― Albert Einstein.

Science Week 2022

The theme for British Science Week 2022 was ‘Growth’. The children really enjoyed taking part in different Science activities throughout the week. Each class were given 4 sunflower seeds and a challenge investigation to complete, the class that grow the tallest sunflower will receive a Science prize!

Year 5 compared children’s height and age. They measured the height of children in different classes, worked out their ages in months and plotted the points on a line graph to see if there was a correlation.

Year 1 went searching for minibeasts in our school grounds. They found lots of animals and compared the different lengths of worms they found.

Year 1 and Year 3 also became scientists and mixed vinegar, food colouring and bicarbonate of soda together to create a bubbly reaction!

Year 5 STEAM day

Year 5 had a fantastic time on their STEAM day meeting different animals!

Home learning Whole School Experiment

During lockdown, all of the children at Middlestown had the opportunity to carry out an investigation to find out what makes ice melt the quickest. The children really loved it!

Lower Foundation

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
