Science is all around us! At Trinity St Mary’s Primary School, we believe that scientific investigation is one of the most powerful ways to learn; developing curiosity and perseverance as well as challenging what we know about the world. We aim to make science as practical as possible, linking it to real life contexts and giving a meaning to our learning.
We follow the National Curriculum which provides a high-quality education. Our science lessons are fun and engaging and provide the children with lots of hands on experience. We make use of all of our facilities when teaching and do not limit science to the classroom. We have lessons on the field and in the playground. We even have strong links with William De Ferrers and the children all participate in various workshops and lessons there throughout the year. Our lessons aim to develop the key skills of investigation, problem solving and team work; empowering children to question the world around them and become scientific thinkers.
Recently, two of our children participated in the STEM engineering competition, with two children’s work being featured in an exhibition at Canterbury Christchurch University. We look forward to celebrating more successes in science this year.
