Science at English Martyrs is an important part of the curriculum as it inspires curiosity among the children with regards to their surroundings from the Early Years through to Year Six. It also facilitates the children’s understanding of other subjects including English, Maths, Design and Technology and Geography. Overall, Science encourages innovation while boosting creativity and embeds the importance of thinking, questioning, testing and evaluating which can be used in all aspects of the children’s lives and experiences.
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
