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
  • Electricity
  • Plants
  • Sound
  • The Earth and Beyond
  • Properties of Materials
  • Evolution and Inheritance
  • Light and the eye.
