Prep Research
Research Programmes

At The Perse Prep, children are introduced to the steps in the Perse Research Model from Year 3, engaging in practical research when conducting experiments in science or fieldwork in geography, for example.

As they move through the school, children are taught to become more critically observant, whether collecting their own data or reviewing facts and knowledge from a variety of sources (both in books and online).

By the time children reach Year 6, they are given a host of opportunities to hone their research abilities. This culminates in the Summer term when they research, plan and deliver a lesson on a topic of their choice for their peer group.

Throughout this term, the children also have dedicated homework time to work on an independent study project, exploring an area of personal interest. Children share their ideas to others and explain their learning as part of an exhibition. Previous projects have included Raspberry Pi robots, maths games, silk screen printing and genealogical analysis from a family tree.
