Our Science vision at St Anne’s is to stimulate, nurture and sustain the sense of excitement, wonder and curiosity about natural phenomena.
Science is a dynamic, creative, human process. The values that guide scientific endeavour: respect for living things and the environment; respect for evidence and the opinions of others; honesty in collecting and presenting data; an openness to new ideas, are the basis of responsible citizenship.
Through science, children are able to develop important, transferable skills to prepare them to be enterprising and creative adults. Through collaborative investigative tasks they can learn to ask questions, interpret data, make deductions and draw valid conclusions based on evidence. Through learning about key scientific concepts in relevant, real-life contexts they can acquire the ability to express and justify their views on science-based issues of importance to society, based on knowledge and understanding of scientific principles and concepts.
As part of the science curriculum we aim to introduce the children to the scientists who have changed their fields. We also investigate the impact of Science and Scientists in our local area. Did you know J P Joule (famous physicist) lived, and died, in Sale?
This learning through science will help their development as successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
At St. Anne’s Science forms an important part of our STEM teaching and we hope to inspire learners to become the scientists of tomorrow.
