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.

British Science Week 2023
The theme for British Science Week 2023 was ‘Connections’. Our school focused on making connections between the science curriculum and science in ‘the real world’. The idea behind this was to bring Science to life, transforming it from simply learning the facts, to linking these facts to real world situations and being inspired to dive deeper into the wonderful world of ‘Science’!

Our Science Learning
The ‘Eco Warriors’ of Middlestown Primary Academy hosted an assembly to showcase the fantastic work they have been doing over the last academic year.
They confidently and enthusiastically shared some of their successes, such as fundraising events, litter picks and competitions, all in the name of looking after the local environment. They invited Wakefield Councillor, Samantha Harvey, to attend, along with two school governors, Sunil Nannar and Kath Turner.
They were blown away by the enthusiasm of the children and their efforts over the last year.
We at Middlestown are incredibly proud of them!
Year 5 have been learning about Space! They had great fun diving into what makes a good astronaut and came up with a list of things an astronaut might need to bring along with them on their journey into space. They had some out-of-this-world debates about how important these items were!
Lower foundation really enjoyed exploring slime. They described the texture of it and experimented how far they could stretch it.
Year 1 have been learning about the signs of Autumn. Check out what they have been doing!
Shadow Exploration in Foundation
Foundation loved exploring shadows!
They carefully traced the outlines of the animals and then coloured them in; fantastic concentration!
