Welcome to Science at Pilgrims’ Way.

Here at Pilgrims’ Way we are lucky enough to have very strong links with Canterbury Christ Church University and King’s School Canterbury. As a result of this, we are very fortunate to be able to learn Science through different and exciting ways.

We have many events coming up over the course of the year so keep your eyes peeled for updates and photographs.


On Tuesday 31st October we were lucky enough to have Canterbury Christ Church University to teach Science to the entire school.

Each class had at least 5 students to teach an exciting science lesson with experiments and hands-on activities. We had children using pumpkins, making telephones and building rafts, all whilst using scientific understanding and knowledge.

It was a fantastic afternoon and we would like to thank Christ Church for a spectacular Science session.

Science is a core subject at Pilgrims’ Way Primary School and we have linked with King’s School Canterbury to further our Science possibilities. Within the link we can offer year 5 and 6 children the chance to take part in ‘Saturday Smarties’, a master class ran by King’s School Canterbury on Saturday mornings over three terms in which the children can take part in secondary level Science lessons.

Since working alongside Kings in the Primary Schools Partnership we have had some excellent advantages for the school.

Year 5 have been very lucky in receiving a free science lesson from the Physics teacher at Senior Kings all about sweets and how sweets are made using science. The children were fascinated by this and worked exceptionally hard. This could not have happened without our partnership.

As a school, we have also received free science equipment that will benefit our lessons greatly. We have also had teachers going on free courses to learn exciting experiments for the children to do it their lessons.

There is still more to come from the partnership for the children and staff alike and I am excited for the future of science at Pilgrims’ Way.

The link also allows the possibility of other children using the equipment and facilities that King’s School Canterbury has to offer that we simply cannot. Science has a very exciting future at Pilgrims’ Way and we hope to give more information of upcoming events soon.
