Science at Parkhill Infants' School                  



 Play is the highest form of research.     - Albert Einstein


We look at science as something very elite, which only a few people can learn. That's just not true.

-  Mae Jemison


At Parkhill Infants' School we are proud of the quality and depth of our Science teaching.  Children are encouraged to experiment, to explore and to investigate both inside and outside the classroom. 

We want to encourage our children to

Our Science vision

Developing young minds through enquiry, investigation, and enjoyment to create the scientists of the future


Dr Donald Palmer

 Dr Donald Palmer visited the school to talk to the children about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).  Dr Palmer is an associate professor of immunology who has worked with Cancer Research UK and is an honorary Senior Lecturer at Imperial College, London.  

 The children were full of questions for him and really enjoyed meeting a "real scientist"!

When Dr Palmer came I was really excited because I never knew he was a scientist.  He gave me the inspiration to ask questions in science and always explore.                   - Sabah, Year 2                                                                   

Dr Palmer inspired me by telling me something, he said "it's never too early to become a scientist" so I want to start to  be a scientist right now.
