Science at Thorpe Hesley

At Thorpe Hesley Primary School this is what we believe science should be like:

  • Science is fun and hands on.
  • Children get a light bulb moment and realise why something happens.
  • Science is seen as important and relevant to the children's lives.
  • Science learning is cross curricular
  • Children learn practically.
  • Science learning is celebrated on displays around the school.
  • Children are excited about finding things out for themselves.
  • Children use all their senses to discover and find things out.
  • Science learning carries on at home with parents and guardians


  • This is very important to us and so much so that we have recently been awarded a SILVER Primary Science Quality Mark! Well done Science Team!
