Science is a major part of the curriculum in any school and St Joseph the Worker is no different. It is our aim to develop a child’s understanding of the world about them and their own interaction with it through research, cross-curricular links and hands on experience.
Our curriculum has a topic based approach to ensure all aspects of the National Curriculum are included. This means that we can ensure that the children have a valuable and exciting learning experience which we hope will inspire them to have a life-long interest in the scientific world. The learning we deliver is varied and interesting, which develops children’s understanding as they move through our school.
Scientific enquiry is an essential part of our science curriculum, this is integrated within topics. Through scientific enquiry, children learn vital life skills such as prediction, observation, classification and fair testing. Children will also learn technical vocabulary associated with each topic.
