Working Science – Primary Science Workshops

New Workshop Titles:

From September 2017 we are introducing 3 new primary science workshops that we have developed in response to school requests.

These new titles are “Darwin, adaption and evolution”, “Rocks, minerals and fossils”, and “Chemical reactions: Acids and alkalis”.

These new workshops are suitable for primary classes between Year 3 - Year 6.

All of our science workshops allow children to try ‘hands-on’ practical science to stimulate questioning and kinaesthetic learning in a safe controlled environment.  We provide memorable and challenging experiences that complement and extend the learning of science in the National Curriculum at KS1 and KS2.  Pupils can investigate electricity, forces, magnets, rocket making, circuits, space & astronomy, chemical reactions, light, sound & vibrations, geology & fossils and materials.

We have prepared a range of science workshops that have been tested in schools and have been found to be stimulating and enjoyable, allowing children to explore equipment and real world science examples that they would not usually see.  They also extend children’s learning and provide real life examples to anchor science concepts.  These really are workshops that you cannot get anywhere else.

Please see our workshop leaflet for a quick summary of our popular workshops.

We are particularly well known for our unique Electricity Workshops, which are highly rated by teachers including our 'Eco-Electricity' and 'Light & Electricity' workshops.  If you need electricity workshops for KS2 classes please enquire about these.

We have also developed and trialled a new Primary Science CPD Session for teachers to help primary school teachers to increase confidence with the teaching of science subjects and to provide ideas for equipment and exciting science investigations in class.

Teachers give us outstanding reviews saying they “would recommend these workshops without hesitation”.  See our great recommendations.

We will work with you to tailor our events to suit the prior learning of your pupils, to extend their learning and enthuse them about science.

Science Club

If you are interested in having an Afterschool Science Club in your school. Ask your school to get in touch with us.

Each week we do practical science experiments covering different aspects of science, from electricity generation to making slime and perfumes.

There is no lower limit to the number of children but 15 is a good manageable number of children in each session.

Our Afterschool Science clubs run for 1 hour after school one day a week.

Our afterschool clubs in Newick Primary, Shipbourne Primary, Claremont Primary and Buxted Primary Schools have all been well attended and enjoyed by the children.
