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!
