At St Faith’s, our engaging Science Curriculum develops children's love of learning and nurtures individuals' skills and talents. Children are supported to ‘let their light shine’ (Matthew 5:16) and reach their full potential.
Children are naturally curious. We nurture this through exploration, discovery and developing skills of scientific enquiry. We use the local environment, trips, and practical activities to widen children’s horizons and give science a meaningful context.
As well as exciting day to day lessons, science at St Faith’s includes activities such as:
- trips to enhance learning, such as The Science Museum and city farms and zoos
- learning about the lifecycle of chicks by hatching them from eggs
- science afternoons with a range of practical experiments such as making butter or using lemons as electricity conductors
- cross-curricular activities exploring themes such as climate change and plastic pollution.
These first-hand experiences enable children to develop their factual knowledge and scientific skills, and gain an understanding of living things, materials, and scientific processes. Each year children build up their scientific knowledge and understanding of concepts, developing the self-confidence and independence to apply their knowledge.
