Science

We are currently using an adapted version of the Kent Science Scheme at Cheriton. This scheme has been based on the recent National Curriculum and covers all the main fields in science.

Our science teaching includes a wide variety of activities, both in classroom and outside. We lean heavily towards practical, investigative science teaching.

This is a very hands on approach, where the children learn by ‘doing’ wherever possible.We have a wildlife area where much of our outdoor science learning occurs. 

We had a fun filled science week in March. There were breakfast activities, assemblies, two homework competitions and numerous action packed lessons. To finish the week off, we raced our balloon cars in a final assembly where a variety of prizes were given out for fabulous posters and sleek cars.
