At St Christopher’s we facilitate investigations that allow pupils to discover many scientific facts for themselves. In this way, the practical aspects of science are explored from Reception onwards and pupils are encouraged to use appropriate scientific language from an early age.
From Year 4 the pupils enjoy the use of a designated science lab and specialist teaching. This continues to take an interactive approach, incorporating problem solving and teamwork skills, alongside topics that help develop their knowledge and understanding of the world. In Year 5, pupils are provided with additional support if they are preparing for Common Entrance for boarding schools, or day schools, out of London.
