Science lessons are planned in units which are taught over a half-term period. There is a strong emphasis on investigative learning, with pupils working collaboratively, undertaking practical activities, discussing their work and drawing their own conclusions from their results. Health and Safety Education forms an essential part of the science curriculum.
