Science Empiribox at KPS

At Khalsa Primary School we value science because it makes an increasingly important contribution to all aspects of life.  We ensure that the children take part in regular practical lessons using a variety of resources and develop the understanding of the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.

All children will have:

  • A wider variety of skills linked to both scientific knowledge and understanding.
  • A richer vocabulary which will enable to articulate their understanding of taught concepts.
  • High aspirations, which will see them through to further study, work and a successful adult life

Our children say that Science is:

  • Discovery
  • Experimentation
  • Technology

At Khalsa we are working towards accreditation for our Science teaching and learning in the form of a Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) award. The award recognises a clear high expectation for effective Science teaching and learning across the school.

We also offer outstanding opportunities for our children to explore scientific concepts outside of classroom.

  • Key Stage 1 and 2 Science club offered by Mad science takes place weekly and involves the children taking part in a range of fun, interactive and engaging science experiments to continue the love of science
  • Science Committee-each year we recruit a team of children to take on roles which include Science Technicians, Recycling Ambassadors and Energy Wardens. The team help to raise awareness across the school and with the local community.
  • At Khalsa we use Empiribox scheme of work. This consists of a kit that contains very exciting experiments for demonstrations and, most importantly, hands on science investigations for the children. It boosts their confidence in science and their love of it as a subject. They are able to think, and question, scientifically.
  • Empiribox is not only used for KS2 we also have a kit for KS1. These children are still being introduced to the idea of science and it is important to instil a love of scientific enquiry.
