Science at English Martyrs is inspiring, practical and thought provoking. We ensure that children develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of the world through engaging and real world science. We encourage all children to be able to explain their thinking and ask questions using scientific vocabulary.
The science curriculum is exciting, hands-on based learning where children are given opportunities to find answers, discuss their ideas and develop their understanding of the world around them. In order to do this successfully they need to develop range of skills and knowledge including:
- Scientific vocabulary
- Applying their mathematical knowledge
- Know how science is used in everyday life
- Working scientifically
- Understanding a fair test
