Specialist teachers teach children in our two purpose-built Science labs.
The science curriculum at Ripley Court provides children with increasing knowledge and understanding of the world around them and beyond.
A large part of our Science curriculum is practical, supported with discussions, explanations, and various resources.
Our children are taught to:
- Think scientifically.
- Apply the rules of fair testing in practical situations.
- Use the appropriate scientific equipment competently.
- Record and display results and findings.
Thus preparing our pupils for more complex scientific investigations as they progress through school.
Examples of topics covered are:
- Teeth and Healthy Eating
- Magnets and Springs
- The Earth and Beyond
- Properties of Materials
- Cycle Variation and Classification
- MRS GREN
- Light and the Eye
- Changing Materials
