Science at St. Marys

At St Mary’s we believe that Science is used to encourage and develop a child’s natural curiosity about the world. Science lessons provide the children with a safe and effective environment in which they can pose scientific questions and test their theories about the world around them. Children begin to appreciate the way Science will affect their future on a personal, national and global level. We aim to increase pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the world around us, develop key skills associated with the process of enquiry and develop transferable life-long learning skills. We follow the National Curriculum for Science. The document below gives more detail about the topics covered across the school in Science.
