Welcome to the Science page
Here at St. Peter’s we promote the enjoyment of learning through practical investigations, exploration and discussion. The children develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The children have the opportunity to develop their understanding through different types of Science enquiries that help them to ask and answer scientific questions about the world around them. Through a wide range of topics, we ensure they are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future.
To launch our STEM learning week we had an exciting demonstration from the Mad Science team.
As part of our STEM learning week we designed a specialist STEM day. All children within school were mixed age groups and had the opportunity to work through 3 mini STEM projects through the day.
Primary Science Quality Award – Silver
“Gaining a Primary Science Quality Award is a significant achievement for a school.
- Jane Turner, PSQM National Director
Earlier this year, St. Peter’s was awarded the Primary Science Quality Award (Silver level) which celebrates a commitment to excellence in science teaching and learning.
The Primary School Quality Mark scheme enables schools to work together to share good practice and is supported by professional development led by local experts. It encourages teacher autonomy and innovation while at the same time offering a clear framework for development in science subject leadership, teaching and learning.
Working to achieve this award has allowed us as a school to raise the profile and quality of science teaching and learning. It has involved all staff and children and it has been wonderful to see the children’s enthusiasm around Science.
