Science Ambassadors

At Ashdown Primary School we believe the teaching and learning of science is key to understanding the world around us and to help prepare our children for the future.

We have selected one science Ambassador from each year group (Year 1-6) to work closely with science leaders to encourage and share the love of science across the school. Their role will include a number of duties:

- to clearly explain what they have been learning in science each term using scientific vocabulary. This will be shared in termly meetings through use of their science books.

- to help with the organisation of science resources

- to assist teachers in setting up their classroom for science lessons

- to assist visitors around the school and discuss science at Ashdown Primary

- to feedback the thoughts and opinions of their class to science leaders/teachers

-to try out new science equipment

Here are our new infant Science Ambassadors
