Science

Welcome to Science at Chesswood.

Science is taught throughout the school, based on first hand experience. That is, experimentation with practical materials. Investigation is emphasised by the National Curriculum and we devote about half of our time available to this aspect. The children are involved at all levels, from posing questions to designing experiments and drawing conclusions.
