Welcome back to Senior School Science

The Senior School Science Department extends a warm welcome to all returning and new students. We hope all students are well rested over the summer holiday and are excited about another inquisitive year learning Science.

We have been busy planning lessons, experiments, after school programmes and the Science Fair for the year ahead.

If you have any questions about this academic year please contact your child’s Science teacher or Mr. Gaynor: Head of the Senior School Science Department.

Setting and aiming to beat your Personal Best (PB).

0

It’s the time of the year for the first end of topic test. In science, students predict how well they think they will perform and then compare this prediction with their actual grade/mark. Research has shown that students can accurately predict their performance. The comparison of predicted and actual grades forms the basis of a post exam learning conversation and reflection on what the student can do to close the gaps in their knowledge.

The first test will also be used to set their personal best (PB) for the rest of the course, students will track and strive to beat their PB.

By reflecting on their learning and always striving to improve, our students are working towards excellence.
