Science is taught explicitly through a weekly session. The emphasis in Science at Dewhurst is not solely on knowledge; the development of ways children may investigate and solve problems scientifically; predicting, using results and data from tests, drawing conclusions and making links across themes is a priority.

We make children aware of environmental issues and encourage them to make their school more environmentally friendly, tackling areas such as energy saving, recycling and wildlife habitats.

Our Science learning is enhanced further through Science weeks.  These  are extremely practical and you may find your child’s class teacher eager for some additional hands on support!
