Science

Science is a Combined Science course. It is designed to stimulate interest and encourage students to work systematically. The programme of study includes experiments and investigative Science, life processes and living things, materials and their properties and physical processes.

The Science course aims to develop pupils’ scientific knowledge, skills and understanding. The modules are designed to encompass a problem solving approach to learning with a strong emphasis on practical experiences. We encourage an enthusiastic approach from all pupils and are always pleased with interest shown by all ability groups.

Stem Ambassadors visit to talk about antibiotics and DNA

This workshop looked at how antibiotics are used by bacteria to protect themselves and how they were later discovered and used to treat illness.
Washing-up liquid and ethanol were added to strawberries to demonstrate how to isolate DNA. 
They also talked about mutations in the DNA leading to antibiotic resistance.

Year 6 have been learning about the 'Great Stink' of London in 1858 and about the engineer, Sir Joseph Bazalgate who designed a revolutionary sewer system to clean the River Thames and improve the quality of life in London in the late 19th Century.

Year 6 had their chance to clean dirty water in this experiment and thought about how they could make the water clean enough to drink.
