Science

At Sacred Heart, we value the importance of science in our pupil’s academic journey.  All children are given opportunities to explore the World around them and enquire and investigate within the topics that they study.  All lessons are taught to a high a standard throughout the school.  This has been recognised In our award of the Gilt PSQM

Throughout the year, the children take part in many scientific trips with the added benefit of having   science based visitors invited into school as well.  These experiences bring the subject to life and deeper the children’s experiences and understanding.  To further this, we offer the children the opportunity to complete independent science projects at home. A weekly science club is also offered which gives the children extended science learning activities.

There is a strong focus on ‘working scientifically’ and pupils are taught to carry out their own investigations, carefully observing, measuring, fair testing and interpreting their results. Pupils in Key Stage 1 learn about plants, animals and habitats, everyday materials and seasonal change. In Key Stage 2they also learn about rocks, states of matter, electricity, light, animals and their habitats sound, forces, Earth and space, animals including humans and evolution and inheritance.
