Science Curriculum

Here at Sunnyside Academy we understand the importance and value of Science as a core subject within the National Curriculum.

Pupils from our Student Council met with staff to discuss their thoughts and expectations of teaching and learning in Science. These views were then consolidated into 5 key principles that are at the core of every Science lesson.

Sunnyside Science Principles are:

  • Working collaboratively
  • Developing independence
  • Engaging, hands on experiments that are fun!
  • Making predictions
  • Using and making scientific models to share our knowledge and understanding

The principles are displayed in every classroom and also in the school corridor to ensure that Staff, Pupils and Parents/Carers all share the same clear vision for Science at Sunnyside.
