Science at St Vincent's

At St Vincent's we teach the science national curriculum. Children are encouraged to think like scientists and take part in investigative science experiments. We recently obtained the Primary Science Mark, this is evidence of our high standard of teaching and learning and committment to teaching science. 

Please follow the link for more detailed information about the science national currciulum.  


Our Science Teaching Philosophy:

1. Children are engaged in practical activities and experiments which develop their understanding.

2. Children are appropriately challenged and able to explain their results.

3. Resources, planning and practical activities are well prepared, organised and relevant to engage and actively involve all children in the lesson.

4. Children are encouraged to think and work scientifically.

5. Children make links to previous learning.

6. Children have the opportunity to ask and answer questions.
