At St. Joseph's, our Science Curriculum inspires curiosity in children and develops a sense of excitement and curiosity about the natural world. Children are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. It focuses on the three fundamental scientific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics, giving pupils a rounded understanding to appreciate and enquire about the world around them.
Working scientifically is essential, these skills are embedded throughout each unit so that in addition to the core knowledge and vocabulary, children develop skills of observation, investigation, fair testing, classification and data handling.
