At Les Voies we endeavour to make Science as 'hands on' as possible and provide all our students with opportunities to explore and investigate the scientific world around them.
By providing practical experiences, we ensure that they learn the Big Picture skills of planning, conducting and evaluating. All of the sciences; Physics, Biology and Chemistry are taught in both Middle and Upper School. In Middle school this is often through a theme such as rocks and soils, space or how plants grow. We encourage the students to plan and carry out their own scientific enquiries as well as teaching them so that their subject knowledge is developed.
Lessons for our younger KS2 students take place mainly in their classrooms and in the outdoor environment, whilst our secondary students have access to a fully-equipped scientific laboratory.
