Science Club Partnerships
King Edward’s Science department leads a four-week programme of Science sessions with a group of Gifted and Talented students from local primary schools. The sessions are designed to be linked in with the primary school curriculum, covering Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
The aims of this project are to instil a love of science amongst primary school students, offering them to take part in exciting experiments and use new equipment.
This activity has been running for many years, in the Autumn term, for two, four-week blocks. It is intended that this will continue for the foreseeable future.
The science department resources and equipment are critical to the success of this project, alongside the members of the Science teaching staff who run the group.
The feedback from the schools has been very positive, with positive evaluative comments from the students. Many commented on their love of the sessions, and how it has shaped their ambitions for the future.
Each School has around 15 students from KS2 involved in the project, both boys and girls.
This activity has been running for many years, in the Autumn term, for two, four-week blocks.
It is intended that this will continue for the foreseeable future. This is the first year Shirley Junior have taken part in the Science workshop.
