Natural Science forms part of the core subjects in the Primary Phase (Gr 1-7). In following the Cambridge curriculum it serves as a stimulating vehicle for developing basic skills. Learners are encouraged to develop their natural curiosity, ask questions, devise suitable investigations, collect and observe, check and solve problems, record their findings and draw conclusions. The programmes of study include plants and animals, the human body, human influences on the earth, types and uses of materials, seasonal changes, space, forces, magnetism, sound, music and energy. School trips are arranged to be complementary to subject themes.
