In Mestral, students of 4th, 5th and 6th Primary study both Natural Science and Social Science in English. We use material from the ‘Sciences’ series, the content of which is in English, and is published by Oxford University Press. This allows students to cover the material of Natural and Social Science which corresponds to their year group, while at the same time being involved in a greater number of lessons with English as the means of communication. This is particularly appropriate in the field of Science, as its international language is English.
At the moment, 6th Primary are studying human reproduction, which of course includes information about reproductive cells, systems, processes, cycles, pregnancy and birth, with an evaluative test at the end of the unit.
