Science

Children are naturally curious about how the world around them works, and it is in Science lessons that the answers to their questions can begin to be answered. Using a stimulating blend of discussions, demonstrations, and as many practical activities as possible, children are encouraged to explore and question. Teaching staff aim to foster and prolong their thirst for knowledge.

In addition to a challenging range of topics, the children are taught how to work and think like a scientist, starting from the earliest years and progressing in a series of carefully graded steps. These steps nurture critical thinking, independence, and respect for the world around them.  By the end of Year 6, our young people are fully prepared to progress to secondary school, equipped with the necessary skills to continue their educational adventure.

Technology

Information and Communication Technology has become firmly embedded in many aspects of everyday life, both at home and in the workplace. As ICT underpins today's modern lifestyle, it is essential that all pupils gain the confidence and ability that they need in this subject, whilst developing motivational and social skills.

All classrooms are equipped with computers, and most enjoy the use of an interactive whiteboard, which plays an integral part in teaching and learning in all subjects of the curriculum. Each class is allocated a time when pupils are taught discrete ICT, in the spacious ICT Room in Mundell Court.

Our aim is for the children to appreciate the relevance of ICT in society, and as a tool for learning, communicating, researching, and for controlling and understanding their environment.

In Design Technology, the children are taught how to develop their own ideas, in order to solve a problem or meet a need. Our purpose-built and spacious DT Room is equipped to offer the very best learning opportunities in this subject. With the support of specialist staff, children progress through a series of projects, which are often linked to other areas of the curriculum.

Children learn from a variety of techniques, and practise skills which enable them to design for a purpose, make prototypes and evaluate for suitability. They are constantly challenged to identify and find their own solutions to the problems they encounter. Emphasis is placed on the transition from dependency to independence.

A unique piece of art, in the form of a 3D model, designed and created by six children in the DT Department, was selected by the organisers of a nationwide competition, to celebrate the opening of the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Their exhibit Reflections on Shakespeare is part of a new and permanent art exhibition called My RSC Gallery at the RST.
