St. Peter's Catholic Primary School Following in Jesus' footsteps, we live, love and learn together as a school family to build a better world.

Science

At St. Peter’s Catholic Primary School, curiosity knows no bounds and young minds are encouraged to explore the fascinating world of science! We believe that science education forms a crucial part of a child's development, fostering curiosity, critical thinking, and a lifelong love for learning.

We adopt a knowledge-rich and hands-on inquiry-based approach to teaching science, making it an engaging and enjoyable experience for our young learners. Through a carefully crafted curriculum, we aim to instil a sense of wonder and curiosity, laying the foundation for a solid understanding of scientific principles.

 

Key Features of our Science Program:

Interactive Experiments

We understand that children learn best when they can see, touch, and explore. Our Science curriculum is filled with interactive experiments and demonstrations that allow our pupils to actively participate in the learning process. Whether it's growing plants, observing chemical reactions, or exploring simple physics concepts, our pupils are always at the centre of the action.

Outdoor Learning

Our excellent outdoor environment provides the perfect classroom for scientific exploration. Our pupils frequently engage in outdoor activities, such as identifying different habitats, collecting rain, exploring shadows and gardening: connecting classroom theories to the real world. This not only enhances their scientific understanding but also encourages a sense of environmental stewardship.

STEM Integration

St. Peter’s places a strong emphasis on integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) into our curriculum. Through cross-disciplinary projects and activities, pupils develop problem-solving skills, teamwork, and creativity, preparing them for the challenges of the future.

Inclusive Learning

We believe that every child is a scientist in the making. Our science programme is designed to cater to diverse learning styles and abilities, ensuring that all pupils feel included and motivated to explore their scientific potential.

Science education at St. Peter’s goes beyond textbooks and classrooms. It's about nurturing a sense of curiosity, fostering critical thinking skills, and instilling a lifelong passion for learning and where the wonders of science come to life for our young learners!
