Science at Primary Schools in Hertfordshire has become a firm favourite among pupils and teachers following the introduction of Empiribox.
Woodlands Primary School in Borehamwood has been using Empiribox for all 120 of its Key Stage 2 pupils in Years Three to Six for the last twelve months. It was one of the first primary schools in the country to trial the practical Science teaching and learning system two years ago.
The school is also planning to use Empiribox with Key Stage 1 pupils in the very near future.
“We wanted the children to love Science – and now they do! The children always ask me when Science is and are enthusiastic when being taught as all the lessons are interactive and extremely fun,” said Keely Haffner, Science Teacher at Woodlands Primary School. “The children love the demonstrations at the start of each lesson and can’t wait to get involved in their own experiments during the lessons – the learning is limitless and allows the children time to explore, question and evaluate. The training provided also gives me more confidence when delivering the lessons to the children.”
The other schools in the county using Empiribox include:
Parkside Community Primary School, Meryfield Primary School, Monksmead School, Kenilworth Primary School, Summerswood Primary School, Saffron Green Primary School
Shenley Primary School
