Science at St Andrew’s

Through our teaching of Science, we aim to encourage children’s natural curiosity and enquiring minds.

A practical/investigative approach is used to assist our pupils in gaining an understanding of the world around them.

The Science curriculum is divided into four main areas: Scientific enquiry, Biology, physics and Chemistry. The opportunity to investigate their own questions, gain new knowledge, collect and record results are used to engage our pupils.

The school benefits from a science garden, nature areas, a pond and allotments for all of our children to experience. Carrying out investigations, bug hunts, planting and growing seeds are all great ways to get your child involved in Science at home.

  • I can suggest reasons why a test works/doesn’t work.
  • I can give my results to make a conclusion.
