We aim to teach and prepare your child today, for their tomorrow!
Here at New Invention Junior school, we aim to provide high-quality science education for providing the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:

Every year, pupils from years 5 and 6 get the chance to become REAL scientists and take part in a Science Fair. Pupils choose either own groups and the investigation they wish to carry out. Each group (usually in pairs or threes) plan, carry out and evaluate their experiments and present all their information on a board, which is then judged on the day of the science fair by Mrs Dorricott (Science Coordinator) and the governors. A bronze, silver and gold award is presented to each class for their projects. During the afternoon of the judging day, parents are also invited in to come and see their child’s work and are welcome to look around all the projects from the other classes too. Year 3 and 4 are also invited round to view the science fair projects. Its a fun day for all, especially because pupils are allowed to come dressed as Mad Scientists for the day.
Famous Scientist Week 22-6-15
During the week beginning 22nd June 2015, children across the whole school took part in ‘Famous Scientists’ week. During this week they studied different scientists but also took part in two competitions: design a stamp to celebrate the life of a famous scientist and design an invention to solve a problem. Below are some videos of children talking about their inventions and also some of the winning stamps , ranging from year 3 to year 6.
