Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. Science links direct practical experience with ideas so it can engage learners at many levels. During the teaching of science an emphasis is placed on the teaching of scientific skills such as predicting, estimating, measuring, fair testing, hypothesising, and drawing conclusions.
For 2018-2019 Ark Byron has adopted a new approach to science teaching that emphasises practical experiments and investigation. We hold regular "deep learning" days when the school focuses on STEM (science, maths and technology) allowing time for exploration.
