Statement of Intent
At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we deliver an
enriched science curriculum on a weekly basis with many opportunities for
practical science investigations. The children are exposed to a wide variety of
topics that support the children’s curiosity for learning. Our curriculum aims to broaden the children’s scientific view of the world around them, whilst promoting a love for
enquiry and wanting to explore new things.
For more information about Science at St. Joseph’s, please contact Miss H. Oates.
