A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.
At Holy Family our vision is to give the children a science curriculum which enables them to confidently explore and discover in range of contexts. We aim to inspire the development of a deeper understanding of science. We work scientifically to offer exciting, practical, hands-on experiences which promote awe, wonder and curiosity. We promote the development of key scientific skills which can be applied to the ever-changing world around us. We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life-long learners ready to explore the world around them.
We hold an after school club for children in Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. Each week the children have the opportunity to take part in fun and interactive sessions. By the end of the club they will also achieve the CREST Award for Science.
