Science and technology
We believe that science and technology fuel our children’s imaginations and broaden their horizons.
Science is taught by class teachers in Years 3 and 4 and specialists in Years 5 and 6, often taking advantage of the support and facilities provided by the Senior School laboratories, equipment and technicians. There is a strong emphasis on the teaching of scientific process skills and learning through hands on experimentation. Clubs and competitions are provided by staff, expert parents and enthusiastic pupils.
From Year 4 onwards the children all have their own laptop which they use with increasing proficiency as a tool to support their learning and communicate their understanding. Coding is taught as part of a specialist rotation and our own IT department provide a valuable source of knowledge and expertise to help us develop the children’s skills. The school also has a wealth of equipment that can be used for specific teaching, including class sets of ipads and photographic equipment.
