At Leigh Academy, we use plan bee to follow the national curriculum. Our learning links through the years we are at school, slowly building our knowledge, interest and love for exploring new things. This starts in nursery and reception where learning is based on their interests, doing a wide range of activities.
In Science, we endeavour to provide our pupils with opportunities to ‘explore’ in their learning, encouraging them to develop enquiring minds that question the world around them and how it works. By utilising these practical opportunities, the children can contextualise a wealth of knowledge; encompassing concepts, skills and positive attitudes, ensuring that they leave us here at Leigh with the foundations for understanding the rapidly evolving world in which they live. Whether it is bug hunting in nursery, exploring solubility or understanding the circulatory system we passionately believe in allowing children to learn though practical, engaging and exploratory lessons.
From year 1 through to year 6, lessons fall under different types of learning.
