Term-time Holidays

Amendments to the Education Regulations have been introduced that affect headteacher's ability to grant leave of absence for family holidays. It has now been made clear that headteachers should not grant any leave of absence during school time unless there are exceptional circumstances. This will apply to all leave of absence requests for September 2013 onwards.

At Monkshouse School we put a large emphasis on practical activities in Science. This Scientific enquiry forms the basis of our learning, where children can find out how things work, why things happen and what changes can be seen in everything around them. It gives the children the knowledge they will need in life and provides a social understanding of subjects they can take further in secondary school. Children learn to predict what will happen in an experiment, carry out a fair test, analyse the results and consider the reasons why the experiment happened in a paticular way. As part of our science curriculum we cover four aspects of learning: Sc1 - Scientific enquiry Sc2 - Life processes and living things Sc3 - Materials and their properties Sc4 - Physical Processes. These areas are developed as the childrne move through the school.
