Science at Our Lady's is taught with the aim to offer children excellent opportunities which help develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of important scientific ideas and processes and relate them to everyday life.
In every year group, children have the opportunity to plan, prepare, record and report on scientific investigations using a variety of skills and resources.
Science learning ensures that all pupils develop understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. We want children to ask scientific questions, to make predictions and explain their ideas, to test them out and to observe, and to draw conclusions about their discoveries.
We also privileged to have our own Forest School area in our grounds and the newly developing pond area with outside classroom for environmental studies.
Learning through a broad range of topics such as The Human Body, Keeping Healthy, Plants, The Earth, Moon and Sun and Electricity, Magnets and Forces, and many others – using a range of equipment and multimedia resources – ensures excellent progression in this subject.
