Science at Wandsworth Prep aims to cultivate a natural curiosity for the world around us. Through Science, the children are given the opportunity to develop vital skills to begin to make sense of scientific matters they come across in the news and their everyday lives.
The Science curriculum is covered practically through investigations in collaboration with building up in-depth subject knowledge. They work on building up their skills in observation, questioning, analysis, data handling, writing predictions and conclusions.
Excitement and natural curiosity towards Science is developed through a whole school Science Week that happens once a year which includes a variety of workshops, external speakers, parent speakers and investigations that are child-led and then presented by the children in a Science Fair to the rest of the school.
We aim for the children to leave Wandsworth Prep equipped with the necessary skills and curiosity to want to further their Science education as they graduate to their secondary schools and beyond.
