The science teaching within Trinity Academy Richmond actively encourages children to work both independently and with others in practical ways, developing secure subject knowledge, investigative skills and scientific vocabulary. The science topics we cover enable many areas of the curriculum such as Literacy, Numeracy and ICT to also be explored. The children undertake investigations, making predictions, carrying out the practical activities and then analysing the results.
ICT in the 21st Century is an essential resource to support learning and teaching, as well as playing an important role in the everyday lives of children, young people and adults. Information and Communications Technology and Computer Science at Trinity Academy Richmond prepares pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world, in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technology. We are committed to building on the use of these technologies in order to arm our young people with the skills to access life-long learning and employment.
We recognise that Computer Studies are an important tool in both the society we live in and in the process of teaching and learning. Pupils use computing tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and with discrimination. They learn how to employ ICT to enable rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of sources.
At Trinity Academy Richmond, we ensure that the children are taught to respect and protect our environment through reducing, recycling and reusing resources. We are proud of our Silver Eco Schools award.
