At Worthinghead we are inquisitive and enthusiastic scientists. We love working scientifically by taking part in practical enquiries but we are also keen on researching different topics to increase our knowledge and understanding of the world around us. Our learning journey begins in Foundation Stage where lots of hands-on experimentation takes place. We spend lots of time in the Greenwood, our amazing outdoor woodland area, where we can really experience the natural world first hand.
We are very fortunate at Worthinghead to have great science links with our local community. Children from our Year 5 and 6 classes visit Nufarm in Wyke and Solenis in Low Moor on an annual basis. At Nufarm, we find out about the kind of products that are made in this very local chemical factory, have a site tour in a mini bus and visit the bottling plant. At Solenis, we spend the morning in the 'Kids' Lab' conducting experiments (wearing our PPE of course) and have a tour of the site and warehouse.
