Science Outside of the Classroom

Academic Year 2018-2019 saw the start of Weston Favell Primary School’s role as a member of an exciting 2 year science project titled Science Outside of the Classroom. WFPS have teamed up with schools from East Hunsbury, Spain, Sweden and Croatia to see if the learning of science outdoors has an impact on subject knowledge and outcomes. The University of Northampton are also involved in the project and are leading the research. At the end of the project, they will be publishing an academic paper on their findings. Children from Reception and Year 5 are involved in the gathering of the research with the hope that the rest of the school will follow outside in their footsteps!
