Science

At St Joseph’s, we believe that out of curiosity comes investigation, and out of investigation comes results. One day, these results could change the world so our aim is to embrace and encourage that curiosity at every opportunity.

Where possible, science is taught as part of an immersive topic experience, encapsulating a wider range of the National Curriculum and ensuring children are aware of the real-life implications and applications of what they are studying. Children are taught to work progressively more scientifically on their journey through school, exploring varying phenomena and testing theories for themselves. Science needs to be ‘hands on’ so we aim to foster a sense of adventure when exploring different areas of the science curriculum.

All children are advocated to ask questions and prove or disprove their ideas, whilst also being given the appropriate current and historical evidence to show how or why some theories stand. It is our hope that all children look forward to and enjoy their scientific enquiries and maintain an appetite for investigating the world around them throughout their time at St Joseph’s and beyond.
