Science is about children developing a sense of enquiry and understanding of the world around them. We believe that it is our responsibility at St Thomas' to provide children with a greater understanding of the world and to develop the skills and attitudes for investigating that world.
We encourage children of all abilities to reach their full individual potential via the science education outlined in the National Curriculum and make that education as enjoyable as possible.
We live in an increasingly scientific and technological age where children need to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to prepare them for life in the 21st century. The teaching of science develops in children an interest and curiosity about the world in which they live, and fosters in them a respect for the environment.
