Science

At Morley Victoria we teach science as a weekly lesson.  The curriculum is carefully planned so that the children build their scientific knowledge year on year.  Our focus in these lessons is to teach the scientific skills surrounding a particular topic we are covering.  We take a very practical approach to the teaching of science and try to include as many open ended investigations as we can – we know the children really enjoy these because they mention these experiences every year when we review their highlights.

We also occasionally have a science week in school which really inspires and motivates the children in this subject.  Year 6 also visit the local high school as part of their transition programme and participate in a science lesson where they work in a real laboratory environment carrying out chemical changes.
