The children of Mab Lane love Science!
Science is a core area of the curriculum and we place a huge emphasis on practical work and questioning skills which the children love. We let them investigate and explore different aspects of the Science curriculum to foster enthusiasm and participation.
Science is split into 3 further subjects: chemistry, physics and biology. Within these the children study a wide range of topics which follow the Learning Challenge Curriculum and build upon prior knowledge as they progress through the school.
