We aim to introduce students to as many opportunities for experimentation as possible. A great deal of the work in Science is practical and this is backed up with discussions, explanations, media and resources.
Throughout the four year groups students are encouraged to:
- Think scientifically
- Apply the rules of fair testing in practical situations
- Record and display results and findings in a variety of ways
This will prepare them for their further scientific studies as they progress through school Examples of topics covered in the Junior School are:
- Teeth and Eating
- Magnets and Springs
- The Earth and Beyond
- Properties of Materials
- Evolution and Inheritance
- Light and the eye.
