At Kirkby Avenue Primary School we believe that teaching and learning in science should stimulate and excite children’s curiosity about the world around them. It should provide first hand experiences and support for children to develop enquiring minds, learning how to question and discuss science through collaboration. A planned range of practical experiences set in meaningful contexts helps to develop a range of investigative skills and allows children to take risks and learn from their mistakes, developing them into independent learners. Every two years we hold a science week in school which is designed to give the children a sense of awe and wonder; our most recent science week theme was dinosaurs where we were visited by a terrifying Tyrannosaurus Rex! In February we will be holding our next science week with the theme of MAGIC!
At Kirkby Avenue we provide an exciting, rich, relevant and challenging Computing curriculum for all pupils. We teach pupils to become responsible, respectful and competent users of data, information and communication technology. and enthuse and equip children with the capability to use technology throughout their lives. We give children access to a variety of high quality hardware, software and unplugged resources. At Kirkby Avenue, we equip pupils with skills, strategies and knowledge that will enable them to reap the benefits of the online world, whilst being able to minimise risk to themselves or others.
RE in Kirkby Avenue is taught following the Doncaster Locally Agreed Syllabus. We follow a two year continuous cycle to ensure that all children access the full syllabus during their time with us. The syllabus is structured in the form of key questions which the children work towards answering in their own way. It enables understanding of concepts and the development of skills and attitudes so that our pupils can explore wider issues of religion and belief in religiously literate ways. The syllabus prepares the children and young people for active citizenship in a diverse and rapidly changing world, exploring some aspects of British Values in relation to religions and worldviews.
