Science is a core curriculum area at St Francis Primary school.
At St Francis, we recognise the importance of science in every aspect of daily life. We strive to develop children’s natural curiosity, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence. We provide a science curriculum which gives all children an increased knowledge and understanding of our world, whilst developing specific skills associated with working and thinking scientifically. We place strong emphasis on the importance of practical investigative opportunities to enable our children to question and become enquiry based learners. Scientific vocabulary is taught and built upon and cross curricular opportunities are provided to embed English, mathematical and computing skills across the curriculum. At St Francis, we are committed to creating life-long learners who will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and drive to contribute positively to an ever-changing world.
Our science curriculum is a core part of our teaching at St Francis Primary school, with a priority within the timetable and is taught weekly.
