“The Science of today is the technology of tomorrow” Edward Teller

At Sacred Heart our Gospel values and virtues are at the centre of all we do. Through these values and virtues our children grow and develop in a nurturing environment, learning every day to appreciate the wonderful world that God has created for us. Our Science curriculum allows children to explore the world through the different scientific domains in order to question and experiment to further enhance their understanding of the world around them.

Science is taught within enquiry projects as a driver or enhancer. At times, science may be taught explicitly. The teaching and learning of substantive knowledge is to deepen understanding. The teaching and practice of disciplinary knowledge is to improve skills and to support working scientifically. We use our local environment – Jubilee Garden, beaches, woodland and moorland to gain a deeper understanding of nature. We use ‘Explorify’ to get the children thinking and discussing science, as well as to revisit prior learning.
