Science at St. Thomas'
Our Vision and Principles for Science at St Thomas’ CE Primary School
(Created with input from Staff and Pupils)
At St Thomas’ we strive to create and provide a purposeful and practical Science curriculum, which includes rich scientific vocabulary, helps to develop life skills and inspires curiosity. We believe that our Science curriculum contributes to society through the development of problem solving skills, enquiring minds, innovation and increasing fundamental knowledge. We learn Science through hands-on experiences that are relevant to real life and are engaging. We encourage pupils to raise their own questions and take responsibility for their learning. We aim to promote whole-school enthusiasm and passion for scientific enquiry and investigation. We aim to engage children, make them inquisitive about the world around them and instill the confidence to raise questions and find answers.
