Please have a look at your childs homework. I have sent out a summer challenge with lots of fun science investigations with ice. This also includes how to make ice cream! Please take photos and send them in the comments section so I can share on our science page!

Have fun, Miss McKenna.

Please keep recycling your batteries!

Thank you so much for all the enteries to both the Southport flower show competition and the sustanability competition.

We have two prize winners for the sustanability competition in Reception. As well as being highly commended as a school.

Well Done!!

Year 2 and 6 were our winners of the last battery competion and all enjoyed an own clothes day on the 26th May.


A scientist observes, questions, creates hypotheses, experiments, records data, and then analyses that data. All children can be scientists by following their own natural curiosity and at Penwortham Primary, teachers help to facilitate these skills in order for children to flourish as scientists. 

Science at Penwortham Primary school has been developed to provide stimulating and challenging experiences to help children secure and extend their curiosity, scientific knowledge and vocabulary.  

We have high expectations across the science curriculum. In order to fulfil these expectations we provide children with:

  • the opportunity to ask their own questions,
  • steer their own learning,
  • resources to further develop scientific enquiry (identifying and classifying, researching, observing, patterns and relationships, comparative and fair testing),
  • access to a broad curriculum which covers knowledge across biology, chemistry and physics. 

We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life-long learners who will explore the world around them. Even if children do not become scientists or engineers they will grow up in a world that requires scientific literacy and critical thinking skills. Science is all around us and helps children to make sense of the world. 

Science has particular links to 'My Personal Best' through the values of: curiosity, problem solving, reflection and communication.


A huge thank you to all the staff and children involved in our British Science Week 2021.
It has been amazing to see so much quality science happening around school and at home.
