Bolton School Junior Girls


Like all 7-11 year olds our pupils are naturally curious. Science actively encourages them to find out why things happen in the way they do. In our lessons we try to achieve a balance between learning factual information and practical work where pupils are encouraged to plan and devise their own methods of fair testing.

In this way, the children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate how Science may affect their future on a personal, national and global level.

Our studies follow the National Curriculum topics and are linked across the curriculum, particularly with regard to Personal, Health and Social Education (PHSE). For example, Teeth and Eating which is studied in Year 3 and includes a visit by a local dentist.

Science is very informative and fun - the experiments are wonderful things to do!
