Science

Science is an important core subject that establishes a foundation of scientific knowledge and skills. The teaching of science at Brooke Priory ensures that all children have access to exciting and stimulating scientific experiences. A practical approach is taken to all learning – the pupils ARE the scientists and learn that science is a way of thinking, gathering ideas and formulating theories with practical experimental work at its heart. Special science days, national science week, guest speakers and visits to scientific places of interest enhance the classroom curriculum.
