Science is led by Miss Hutcheon and Miss Finnessey.

At Bovingdon Primary Academy, we want children to be inquisitive and curious about the world around them. We aim to teach in a practical and visual way, allowing children to explore scientific concepts and ask questions. Practical lessons have included: creating a practical version of the digestive system, making fossils, creating circuits, watching floating and sinking objects and lots more!

Respect individuality and embracing diversity within our curriculum.
Providing limitless opportunities and developing curious minds.
Encouraging personal success and preparing children for future life.

Science Aims

Bovingdon Primary Academy aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Develop a passion for Science and its application in past, present and future technologies.
  • Are given opportunities to undertake practical work in a variety of contexts that give the possibilities to display originality and imagination in the application of skills.
  • Will have the ability to think independently and raise questions about working scientifically and the knowledge that it brings.
  • Leave Key Stage Two having an extensive scientific knowledge and understanding which will be demonstrated through a variety of ways including; written and verbal explanations, solving problems and reporting on findings.

Each year, we hold a STEM week where focus on science, DT, Maths and Computing. This is always an exciting week to celebrate and enjoy Science. This year, we held an interschool competition across the trust to create an invention! Well done to the Bovingdon winner Noah.
