Kelvin Grove
Primary School


At Kelvin Grove, maintaining curiosity is a driving force behind ensuring children develop key skills in Science, including, collecting data, making observations, classifying, asking relevant questions and designing practicals to help answer these lines of enquiry. We believe that developing an accurate scientific vocabulary helps children to explain their observations and insights with clarity and that practical experiences help develop understanding of key concepts. Where possible, Science is linked to other areas of the curriculum and is always made relevant to the wider world. We know that the skills, knowledge and understanding provided through learning Science are key to developing children to become scientifically literate and informed citizens while nurturing their sense of wonder.

Environmental Science

We take environmental science very seriously at Kelvin Grove and understand the importance of working with our local community and immediate environment to enhance the children’s lives. We have taken part in initia- tives such as the London Schools’ Environmental Awards and Lewisham’s Clean and Green Campaign and have been very successful in these, winning a number of prestigious awards.

At Kelvin Grove, we have scientific and environmentally orientated events such as science week, recycling week, growing events and gardening club to support and extend the children’s classroom experiences, and to allow parents and carers to take an active role in their children’s education. We also ensure that events such as health week and design & technology activities are closely linked to what the children have learnt about in their classroom based lessons.

Design and Technology

Children are taught to develop their design and technology capabilities through designing, making and evaluating a variety of products, using a range of materials.
