At St. George’s Cathedral we provide a balanced programme of science education for all year groups.
Our teaching of science develops pupils’ natural interest and curiosity about the world in which they live, and fosters in them a respect for the environment. Our science provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.
Through our science curriculum, which has been developed with the support of Gary Granger, Primary Science Adviser, pupils build up a body of key knowledge and concepts.
Children acquire and develop these qualities through the teaching of focused half termly science topics.
The science teaching at St. George’s Cathedral is engaging and relevant to pupils’ needs and encourages their active participation both in lessons and through independent research beyond the classroom.
Our children also enjoy our ‘Science Week’, where classes complete a selection of activities such as making their own soap bombs and making an erupting volcano.
