Science

At St Paul's Science is taught all the way through school, from the Early Years to Year 6.  We encourage children to want to find out about the world around them, ask questions and think about how they can find out the answers for themselves.  We learn through practical work and investigations wherever possible.  Children learn about different scientific concepts whilst developing their "Working Scientifically" skills.
 
"The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:
  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics 
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future."  National Curriculum 2014
