Science

Mission Statement

Rooted in gospel values St Cecilia’s Catholic School Community lives together, learns together, loves together.

‘It is important to view knowledge as sort of a semantic tree – make
sure you understand the fundamental principles, i.e. the trunk and
big branches, before you get into the leaves/details or there is
nothing for them to hang on to.’
Elon Musk

Vision Statement

At St. Cecilia’s we believe that teaching and learning in Science should stimulate and excite children’s curiosity about the world they live in.

Science is taught following the year specific milestones (drawn from the National Curriculum programme of studies) and through our question-based planning. We think that Science is exciting and we provide children with the first-hand experiences in order to develop enquiring minds, learning how to question and talk about science using a rich varied scientific vocabulary.

When teaching science at St Cecilia’s we want our children to look at the world as a scientist, which means:

To ask questions about the world they live in and to make simple predictions about what might happen if…

To be able to use observations to sort and measure things.

To record their findings in drawings, words, tables and charts.

To say why certain things happened and to give reason for their results.

To have a working knowledge of science so that they can apply it to everyday life.

To make use of ICT, writing, reading and maths skills in their investigations.

To learn to carry out investigations safely.

To develop independence working scientifically.
