Science Learning at Golden Hill
At Golden Hill, classes are usually mixed age groups, sometimes crossing Key Stages. Classes have a wide variety of ability and children have already completed various topics at their mainstream schools. Children often come into school disengaged from their learning and start at different points during the school year depending on when they have been excluded or referred. Children may arrive or leave mid-way through a topic.
Teachers plan from the most relevant age group for their class. This can change during the year. Please see the most recent newsletter to find out what each class is learning. To accommodate differing abilities of children, work is differentiated using the Working Scientifically objectives.
