Science

Our science curriculum covers the three main areas of learning - life & living processes (biology), materials (chemistry) and physical processes (physics). As much as possible, we aim to approach teaching through exploration and investigation as well as linking the learning to children's own experiences, along with visits to local areas of interest such as the Science Museum and Greenwich Planetarium as well as local parks and woodland .
