Our aim at St Michael’s is to teach the children both scientific skills and knowledge, to foster an enthusiasm for science, to think creatively and independently and to encourage open mindedness and sensitivity to the world around them.
We aim to deliver the Science Curriculum through first-hand experiences. Children are involved in exploring scientific equipment, directing their own enquiries, thinking creatively about scientific ideas and gaining scientific knowledge. We help children to make accurate observations, predictions and conclusions individually and as part of a group. We aim for our children to apply skills from other subjects and relate their work to everyday experiences.
