Our Science subject board reflects the key skill progression across the Key Stages at Rampton. Rampton Primary School aims develop the whole child. Our priority is to create conditions to enable every child to stimulate their natural curiosity and apply their creative thinking. Our curriculum has been designed to empower all our pupils to have curious minds and become active, confident, independent learners, giving each child ‘the opportunity to think’ rather than telling them ‘what to think.’ Our curriculum provides learning opportunities for everyone, develop individual talents and aims to inspire our pupils for the future.
At Rampton, we pride ourselves on creating a nurturing environment that will help inspire our children to reach their full potential. We feel a science capital approach is important to help our children engage in science in a wider context, for them to be passionate and create different opportunities for them to explore STEM.
This year, we enjoyed a STEM Enrichment Day with the brilliant team from the 7th Infantry Brigade Educational Outreach. The activities were a challenge, but really lent themselves to building communication, resilience and perseverance in our school. Visits from Curiscope, Greenpeace and Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust helped children explore the many opportunities and careers in the field.
Clubs are an important outlet to ignite new interest or raise attainment in STEM subjects through more imaginative and inventive teaching methods. STEM club provides our young pupils with the chance to explore aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in less, formal setting to enrich the curriculum.
