Our work in science is firmly rooted in first-hand experience. We give the children the opportunity to observe, explore, ask questions, discuss and draw conclusions from situations that are real. This experience begins early on, when children are naturally curious. We build on this curiosity by teaching children to turn their observations into questions that can be tested in experiments.
Throughout the school children will investigate scientific ideas in relation to: themselves and other living things; the properties of natural and man-made materials; the effect of forces; sound; and light. They will be taught how to present their findings in writing, diagrams and charts. In all practical activities health and safety issues will be stressed.
