In Year 1 and Year 2, the emphasis in science is to build on children’s natural curiosity and understanding of the world. Lessons involve a great deal of observation, discussion and investigation. Practical experiments are carried out and the children are encouraged to discuss their findings with their peers.
From Year 3, pupils learning is based in our Junior Science Laboratory and from Year 4 they are taught by specialist science teachers. We enthuse our pupils with a love for learning about science. Increasingly sophisticated use of scientific methods is developed year on year, culminating in a major science project in Year 6.
During the Spring Term, pupils spend Science Week participating in mini science projects and exciting scientific activities. Throughout the year, guest speakers from the scientific community visit us to inspire and enthuse the pupils.
