Primary School Visits

Our in-house science sessions can help pupils to better understand the world around them and encourage learning and development beyond your existing curriculum. We explore a wide variety of scientific topics across Biology, Chemistry and Physics which are linked to the National Curriculum and complement STEM primary learning.

During each fun and educational science visit, children observe exciting demonstrations, learn about the science behind it and also engage in a hands-on activity to validate their findings. Our aim is to build on children’s natural curiosity, engage them in authentic science practices and inspire them to search for scientific phenomena in their daily lives.

We offer Day Workshops; STEM Challenges, Science Week activities and assemblies covering variety of topics.
All our school activities are fully Insured and Risk Assessed.

The Little Science Society have developed science syllabus that provide seamless progression in scientific knowledge, understanding and skills across the primary-secondary interface.

‘Bridge the Gap’ programme developed by The Little Science Society helps to create the link between primary and secondary curriculum programme. It gives primary pupils the chance to explore different scientific topics and carry out activities with resources and guidance they wouldn’t always have access to. Each session is tailored around DfE Programmes of Study, using expert knowledge of different teaching approaches and learning styles. It is truly invaluable because it helps make the transition between key stages smoother for the pupils, particularly important for pupils starting secondary school.

The programme of study includes a sequence of knowledge.

Primary Science Day Workshops (online and live) and KS2 STEM Challenges are available on request.

Teacher and Subject Leader CPD training:
This CPD session is designed so that teachers will be able to teach KS1 & 2 level science confidently whilst developing a repertoire of practical activities and embed working scientifically in their everyday teaching.
Teachers will be able to:

  • Improve their confidence and competence in teaching biology, chemistry and physics, including planning for scientific enquiry and choosing appropriate resources
  • Plan for inclusion of working scientifically
  • Identify opportunities to develop practical science skills in lesson
