Last Year      Last Term      Last Week
Every science lesson at New Delaval Primary School begins with the Last Year, Last Term, Last Week approach. Pupils are quizzed on learning from their prior science topics Last Year, Last Term and Last Week. We find this supports our pupils to retain their learning and helps build their confidence within this subject.
