The Curriculum Journey
Meet the Team
Who is our favourite scientist and why?
I have too many to choose from, but I would like to give a shout out to Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev. A Russian chemist best known for formulating the Periodic Law and creating a farsighted version of the periodic table of elements.I would also like to mention Mr Meakin (biology), Mrs Andrews (chemistry) and Mr Darrington (physics) my science teachers who inspired me to choose a career in science.
