What do children learn about fair tests at Whitings Hill School?
Fair testing is taught throughout primary school through other science topics. The children will gradually develop their skills and level of independence in planning and carrying out fair tests.
In Years 1 and 2 (Key Stage 1) children will be taught to perform simple tests.
In Years 3 and 4 (Lower Key Stage 2) children will be taught to set up simple comparative and fair tests.
In Years 5 and 6 (Upper Key Stage 2) children will be taught to plan scientific enquires to answer questions and to control variables where necessary.
At home you could plan and carry out your own fair tests with your child.

Bird Watching Week 2019
Between the 25th -28th January 2019 it was The Big Garden Bird Watch.
At Whitings Hill School we followed up with Bird Watching week at school.
The children had the opportunity to watch and monitor the wildlife around the school grounds.
Thank you to all the children who took their time to watch and record the birds they saw!
We shared our results with the BBC Big Garden Bird Watch.
At this cold time of year birds are struggling to find food. How can we help them?
