Science: Science: At St. Anthony's Catholic Primary school we aim to equip our children with the knowledge and skills they need to become resilient and super Scientists!
We want our children to have a knowledge and an experience of the magnificent world around them. Science should foster a healthy curiosity in our children, to be inquisitive and never stop asking questions, so they become independent learners who wish to explore the universe and everything within it. We believe Science encompasses the acquisition of knowledge. We understand that it is important for lessons to have a skills-based focus, children can acquire key scientific knowledge through practical experiences, using equipment, conducting experiments, building arguments, and explaining concepts confidently in all three branches of Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics). Our curriculum develops the scientific thinking of each child whilst encouraging them to respect the world around them, through the help of vocabulary rich teaching and developing a host of life skills through healthy questioning and inquiry. Our children will use their knowledge and skills and experiences to help them succeed in the future.
St. Anthony's use the Developing Experts Science scheme to help achieve this intent for all our children.
