The Benefits of Studying Upper Primary Science

Our Upper Primary Science homeschooling course encourages children to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way in which science will affect the future on a personal, national, and global level. They will learn to ask and answer scientific questions, plan and carry out scientific investigations/ experiments, and learn how to use equipment correctly.

Science teaches an understanding of the natural world through BiologyChemistry and Physics. It aims to stimulate a child’s curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do. It teaches methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought.

The Primary Science homeschooling courses are designed to cover all of the requirements of the UK National Curriculum over the course of 6 years.

For more details of the curriculum see a summary of the areas of study here: Years 3 & 4  /  Years 5 & 6.

Equipment lists: Year 3  |  Year 4  |  Year 5  |  Year 6

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

We loved Science, all the experiments helped Natalia understand scientific concepts and they’ve stimulated her into further research on the issues she found fascinating. Natalia loved the section on animals as well as woodwind instruments.

Hi from Singapore. My 2 kids, Sam and Uma have just joined Wolsey. Sam is in Year 8 and Uma, Year 4 doing Geography, History, Science, Maths and English. We are all very happy and excited. My daughter Uma just made it into the Lion King International cast as young Nala so the entire family will be travelling with her as she tours. We are an adventurous family who believe learning doesn't have to be confined in a classroom. Looking forward to learning and growing with you all.
