Science

Science is taught throughout the school.  Our topics are set out below, but for more details of exactly what the children learn click on the Whole School Topic Grid.  Some of our classes are mixed year groups.  This means that teachers plan carefully to ensure that every child covers the whole curriculum on his or her journey through the school, and may mean that a child might be taught a topic from the year above or the year below.
