Intent for Science
Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds, Healthy Futures.
In Science at Norman Pannell, we recognise its importance in many aspects of everyday life. Therefore, it is our vision to instil a lifelong love of Science within our pupils. Our aim is to provide children with stimulating and challenging experiences which secure and extend their scientific knowledge, skills and vocabulary. We will encourage our children to become curious and inquisitive learners, promoting purposeful enquiry that will excite all children to confidently explore the world around them.

We made a 'Snowstorm in a jar'. We discussed how the densities of the liquids and the acidity of the alka seltzer caused the 'snowstorm' to happen.
