A high quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through specific disciplines of biology, physics and chemistry. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future propriety. All pupils should be taught the essentials aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.
At the Ursuline Prep., we use a published scheme called New Star Science from Intermediate through to Upper Two. The Scheme is organised into six half termly units which are revisited alternate years.
The Scheme builds up a key foundation of knowledge and concepts; it develops rational explanation and develops a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena.
