At Moreland we teach Science topics in blocks each term. This allows children to be fully immersed in their scientific enquiry and learning. Science lessons are practical and children participate in experiments and investigations as part of the curriculum. Literacy lessons are also linked to science as children record their experiments or scientific knowledge, for example writing reports and other information texts. There are many enrichment opportunities linked to the Science Curriculum including visits to places such as The Science Museum, The Garden classroom, The Crystal Sustainable Living Exhibition, The Natural History Museum, London Zoo, City Farms, Highgate Woods and The Royal Observatory. Children also take part in science based workshops in school and share their scientific learning through a Science Fair to celebrate British Science Week. We provide children with insight into careers in STEM subjects through Dream Catcher Assemblies and links with organisations such as Inmarsat, City University, The British Antarctic Survey, Sam Labs and 3 Discovery. A STEM club is offered as part of our extra curricular offer.
