Year 3 Science

This core subject enables the boys to investigate and understand the world around them. Everything we know about the universe is a result of scientific research and experimentation. Human progress and development throughout history has been enabled largely on advances in science. The boys enjoy the hands-on and theoretical aspects of this exciting subject. Working Walls around the school increase their motivation to observe science in motion. In addition to an increase in their knowledge base, the study of science enables development in questioning, gathering data, organising and testing theories, solving problems and applying learning to situations.  Thorpe House science is a key element of our offering, from Lower School right through.
