Our aim for every child in St Andrew’s C of E Primary School is to leave with a strong core of Scientific knowledge, learnt and secured through a range of different experiences. Each unit will be explored in an investigative approach, and the knowledge developed appropriately as they move through the school. Our science covers the main principles of Biology, Chemistry and Physics through a variety of engaging topics.
Alongside the knowledge, all St Andrew’s scientists will develop a set of scientific enquiry skills and be given many opportunities to independently use them in their scientific endeavours. By the time they leave us at the end of Year 6, a St Andrew’s Scientist will be able to:
To do this, all children will be explicitly taught how to make predictions, observe experiments, record results and create conclusions in a progressive manner as they move through our school.
