Science at Rushmore

Science Lead: Nikki Taylor



At Rushmore, we believe that Science is a vital part of children’s learning.

Snap Science


Children need to understand the world around them, and importantly, what the world might be like in the future. We aim to provide children with a broad and exciting curriculum which inspires inquisitive thinking and exploration, with a focus on scientific skills as well as scientific knowledge.

We believe that children should be encouraged to challenge their ideas about the world around them, therefore questioning is at the heart of Science at Rushmore. Questioning and critical thinking help children to develop paths towards understanding, a skill which can be applied across all Curriculum subjects.

The profile of science has been raised within the school, with the help of Snap Science. Snap Science is a dynamic, comprehensive programme, packed with inspirational resources, designed to help you deliver outstanding science from years 1-6. 

To aid in raising the profile of science, each year group will attend a science based trip each year which helps make science come alive.



Science Week

Each year, classes from Nursery to Year 6 take part in British Science Week where classes attend science workshops throughout the week run by teachers, parents and external companies such as the Science Boffins! It is always a week children and staff look forward to! 




 Eco Schools

As the world becomes more aware of climate change, so have we here at Rushmore! We have a passion for saving the planet, one action at a time! 

The eco-committee received a Green Flag award in July 2022 for all the hard work and commitment to improving our school environment.

The eco-committee have planted over 500 trees in our local community and we even have our own tree nursery...



We sow seeds and sell crops to the local parent community too!



We also litter pick annually!
