Our science curriculum is made up of both knowledge and skills. Our lessons include learning about core scientific concepts such as living things, forces and materials. We also like to include experiments regularly where the children will learnt to develop their skills in predicting, investigation and evaluating. Each year group will have a half term dedicated to learning about the science all around us. We will be using our Forest School to learn about plants, animals and much more!
Keep an eye on this page over the next half term to see what we have been learning about as well as the exciting experiments that have taken place across the school.
When working scientifically we use these science wheels. There is one for KS1,lower KS2 and upper KS2. They are displayed in each classroom and every child has one in their books.
St Paul's have been thinking about how we can use less plastic and have discussed the effect this has on the environment especially our oceans. We collected lots of single use plastic that we use daily at school and have created a display called 'Wave of Plastic'. The display is in our library with some thought provoking questions along side the wave.
