Year 1 or 2 Science

The benefits of studying Lower Primary Science

Learning Science from an early age harnesses children’s natural curiosity and enables them to understand the world around them.

Our courses follow a systematic approach to teaching Science, through child centred practical tasks, that will excite and motivate your child. The lessons will nurture a positive approach to Science education that will stay with them into the future and help them achieve their potential as young scientists.

For more details of the curriculum see a summary of the areas of study here: Year 1  /  Year 2.

Once completed, our Lower Primary Science course lays the foundations for children to transition smoothly to our Upper Primary Science course.

Thank you so much for the End of Year Reports. What lovely reports! The girls were so happy to read their tutors’ comments and I am very proud of them. It has been a pleasure working with all of you and I wish you success and prosperity in the next and all the academic years ahead. It looks like the future of learning is heading in the direction of online learning and you are a brilliant school that will continue to thrive and lead in this domain. As I mentioned before, I have recommended you to many of my friends, and we look forward to working with you again sometime in the future.

Canvas is really easy to navigate even without prior experience or guide. I really liked that there are many links to resources for parents to be better prepared when taking on homeschooling.. e.g. phonics pronunciation and explanations of terms used. Noorah finds everything very easy and fun to do, she’s always excited for her lessons and is very relaxed so far. Afterall, its a very thorough and well planned course, we enjoy teaching as much as she does learning!
