Statement for intent for Science teaching and learning
At Ss. Peter and Paul's Catholic Primary school it is our intent that children develop enquiring minds through the subject of Science. They will secure good knowledge and understanding of the specific disciplines of physics, chemistry and biology. Through independent hands-on learning children will grow in confidence to ask and answer open-ended questions to find things out for themselves through scientific enquiry where they are actively involved in their own learning. We want children to be fully equipped, not only for their next steps in education but for their future careers in an ever changing scientific and technological world.

Finding out how clouds make rain!
James from Year 1 and his sister Ella have been conducting a science experiment. They planted cress seeds and explored what would happen if one was left on a sunny ledge and one was placed in a cupboard.
What did they find out?
They found out that that the one in the dark cupboard grew higher looking for light and the one in the sunlight was much greener. This is called photosynthesis.
Well done James and Ella, great science work!
Can our Master baker turn a liquid into a solid?
What a fantastic result! Well done!
Looking for signs of spring in the woods!
Look at what these children have been learning about seasonal change for their home learning this week!

STEM WEEK 2020
The theme of our STEM week this year was 'Diversity.' During the week children took part in a range of exciting activities exploring diversity in animals and in humans. Another focus for the week was for each class to conduct an experiment using one of the five different enquiry types. See if you can guess which enquiry types is being used in the photographs that follow below:
