Together we care, together we learn and together we grow

Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths

Our vision is to enhance STEM at Little Leigh through focussed learning in order for all children to see themselves as scientists and computer scientists. Our creative and inspiring topics lend themselves extremely well to embedding these key areas even further by finding links within our ever changing curriculum. STEM is supported by a unique partnership of Government, charitable trusts and employers, who are all dedicated to raising young people’s engagement and achievement in STEM subjects and careers.  It is our desire to transfer this excitement of STEM to our children to begin planting those seeds of careers, futures and real – life learning before Secondary Education.

Computing Statement of Intent

Technology is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching computing we equip our children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this. 

Science Statement of Intent

We recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. Our vision is to give children a Science curriculum which enables them to explore and discover the world around them, confidently, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world in which we live. To achieve this it involves exciting, practical hands on experiences that encourage curiosity and questioning. As one of the core subjects taught in Primary Schools, we give the teaching and learning of Science the prominence it requires.

The scientific area of learning is concerned with increasing pupils’ knowledge and understanding of our world, and with developing skills associated with Science as a process of enquiry. It will develop the natural curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence.

Curriculum Content

Below are some examples of STEM based Knowledge Organisers and how STEM has been embedded into the curriculum.

Trips and Visits

Big Bang North WestWe believe that every child should have the opportunities to further develop life skills and be inspired by role models within careers linked to STEM. We endeavour to provide as many of these enriching experiences to our children as often as possible including our whole school visit to The Big Bang Fair in July 2019 and regular extra-curricular clubs such as Mad Science and Coding. Please keep an eye out for details regarding the upcoming British Science Week and other enrichment opportunities.
