Science is taught across the school; sometimes as a separate subject each week and sometimes across a themed week. Children learn to carry out investigations, make predictions and analyse results. We utilise links with local secondary schools and with Brunel University to provide Science lessons and activities where possible.
Science is a vital part of the curriculum, fundamental to every child’s understanding of the world around them. At St. Andrew’s we follow the National Curriculum and teach the required knowledge alongside the key skills or working scientifically. Wherever possible, the teaching of science utilises the resources in the local environment and the natural world. Links are made between the science curriculum and other subjects within the curriculum.
