In Year 1 and Year 2, the emphasis in Science is to tap in to the children’s natural curiosity. Lessons involve a great deal of observation, discussion and practical investigation. Simple experiments are carried out and children are encouraged to explain their findings to their friends.
From Year 3, Science is taught in our Junior Science Laboratory, and from Year 4, pupils are taught by specialist Science teachers. The emphasis is on enthusing our pupils with a love for learning about science. Every year, the scientific method is built upon culminating in Year 6 Science projects.
Science Week takes place during the Spring Term. Pupils spend the week taking part in mini Science projects and exciting scientific activities. Guest speakers from the scientific community come in to talk to the pupils.
