Science at Rudston Primary focuses on scientific enquiry and finding out the answers to questions, including the ones that the children have asked themselves! Children are encouraged to carry out their own investigations and discover things for themselves. Science topics are introduced through our Learning Challenge Curriculum where children are encouraged to find the answers to thought provoking questions. All children have practical science lessons throughout the year with Mrs Edwards a Science Specialist Teacher.

CtTlYrAWEAApk4oMrs Edwards is currently working with Years 2, 3 and 4. Looking at States of Matter, Identifying and classifying materials and investigating what happens with the food we eat.
